Pumpkin & Stretch is a children's book brand created by illustrator Laani Teetsov (Heinar) and writer Vincent Teetsov—kids at heart whose dreams in life are to share our stories, silliness, joy, and love through our children's creations.
Beginning as a fun collaborative project, Pumpkin & Stretch has grown into a larger world complete with a picture book, songs, comics, and handmade puppets.

In 2018, armed with a single demo copy of our picture book, “Pumpkin and Stretch”, we visited the many branches of the Toronto Public Library network, reading the story, followed by Vincent performing his accompanying children’s songs. 
In 2020, having found a printer, we published our first book and now continue to grow our brand in the ways that our hearts direct!
