About the Story

We can all follow our dreams. Sometimes it just takes the help of our friends.

Alfonso wants to be a Christmas pumpkin, even though the other pumpkins at the Ghost Town Pumpkin Patch make fun of him for having such a “goofy idea.” With the help of Hector, a barn cat, and Marie, a tree rat, and many other friends he meets along the way, Alfonso goes on a journey to meet Santa who can make his dream come true. When Alfonso finally gets his big chance, he makes a choice that will change the way he thought everything would be. Through it all, he learns about true friendship, love, and believing in himself.
