Pattan’s Pumpkin

Chitra Soundar & Frané Lessac

An exciting, vibrantly illustrated Flood Story from India.

Pattan has an amazing pumpkin… it grows BIGGER than the goats, BIGGER than the elephants, until it is as TALL as the mountains.

But can Pattan’s pumpkin save his family and all the animals when the storm-clouds burst and the waters rise?
