She put one of the smaller pumpkins on Clark’s long lap.”Now nothing surreal,”she told me.”Carve just a regular face. These are for kids”.

This is one of the most important quotes from this story. This quote sums up  all the  actions that take place within this story. As you read the story, you hear how they describe their pumpkins, for example, when Allison makes two happy and two sad pumpkin while Clark makes four angry pumpkins. They created pumpkins that went against what she stated, but, at the same time,the faces of the pumpkins tell about real life. While kids are normally only aware of  happy things, life isn’t always happy, and kids have to learn how life can be sad and cruel.
