Publisher's Summary

Here's the third part of our Briar Patch trilogy: The Pumpkin Tree.

This is a story about journeys, the gaining of perspective, and the discovery of a truly magical place: Planet Earth. We humans are dangerously close to making our Earth-home the ultimate throwaway. We've abused it, squandered it, and claimed ownership of it. But if there is any ownership, it's that we belong to Planet Earth.

Rufus and Nellie Rabbit and other critters stowaway with their human friend, Meridith, on a space-chariot made of things from the dump. (Zeezabyth, the inventor-explorer, is seeking his special Place-in-Space.) After frightening encounters with planets Clang, Tinkle-Clink, and Gummy-Goo, Zeezabyth finds the friendly Place-in-Space-for-Pumpkin-Trees, but it's not quite "real". The Pumpkin Queen sends him home with a pumpkin seed. Planet Earth chooses Meredith and Zeezabyth to clean up the dump (and inspire other "human beans" to clean up their act). Strong stuff, but all with song and dance, humor, and surprise, including the "discovery" of Planet Earth.

This program includes:

Part 1

  • Shady Nook: Meredith & Friends
  • Zeezabyth Builds a Chariot
  • Space Stowaways
  • Planets Clang & Tinkle-Clink
  • Escape from Gummy-Goo

Part 2

  • Place-in-Space for Pumpkin Trees
  • The Perilous Return Home
  • A Wedding By the Brook
  • Planet Earth Speaks Out
  • What a Beautiful Pumpkin Tree!

Let's rally 'round - not a flag, not a race, not a continent, but the planet. Earth is our special Place-in-Space, our tree of life, our magical Pumpkin Tree.

Hey, Mom and Dad: Don't miss the entire Trilogy:

  • Part 1: The Briar Patch Fable and
  • Part 2: Allagash! A Musical Fantasy for All.

    And don't miss out on the rest of the titles from Hedgerow Studios!
