In her second imaginative tale featuring Riley Chester-field Mouse, “The Tale of the Pumpkin Seed Squad” (published by AuthorHouse), author Carolyn Mitchell has penned yet another adventure starring the tiny hero.

In “The Tale of the Pumpkin Seed Squad,” Riley joins his friends in an exciting football game using a pumpkin seed as the ball. The comical twists in the game come vibrantly alive through clever rhyme and captivating illustrations by Brenda Timms.

“The Tale of the Pumpkin Seed Squad” is a delightful commentary on competition and sportsmanship that will surely charm even the least of its budding-athlete readers. It is a light-hearted tale that captures a fun and familiar topic in an easy-to-read rhyme, vividly bringing each character and storyline to life.

Mitchell explains that her book is important because she feels the “basic values of friendship and sportsmanship are important to emphasize in an increasingly busy and secular society.”
