Pumpus Has a Glowing Idea! |
Pumpus the Pumpkin loves science and inventions. He and his friends are excited to go camping on Halloween. But once they arrive, they realize they forgot the matchsticks to start a campfire. Pumpus, using his book of great inventions, solves the problem by sharpening a piece of wood--abiding by all safety rules--and rubbing it together with a piece of Aspen to produce friction. He explains how friction produces fire, and demonstrates , being sure to follow fire safety precautions, until he creates an ember, which he carefully places into a ball of dry grass. The campfire is glowing! Now, the camping trip is saved, and the three friends carve their jack-o-lanterns and share ghost stories. Through science, mechanics, and safety, Pumpus saves the day.
