Pumpkin Fairy Tales

Pumpkins always remind me of Cinderella. I just can't help it must be the little girl in me that still loves all those fairy tales!

"Run into the garden, and bring me a pumpkin."

Cinderella went immediately to gather the finest she could get, and brought it to her godmother, not being able to imagine how this pumpkin could help her go to the ball. Her godmother scooped out all the inside of it, leaving nothing but the rind. Having done this, she struck the pumpkin with her wand, and it was instantly turned into a fine coach, gilded all over with gold. -Cinderella; or, The Little Glass Slipper (France, Charles Perrault)
