Chestnut Cove

When King Milford offers his entire kingdom to the person who can grow the largest juiciest watermelon, the inhabitants of Chestnut Cove become selfish and stop helping each other. Chestnut Cove is usually the kind of place where folks stop and smell the roses, but when everyone begins to daydream about what could be bought with the riches, greed and watermelons threaten to ruin the friendly town.
Young children will be relieved by an outcome that confirms that all in the community is worthwhile preserving.
