Overview

A magical bedtime story for kids and adults.

Duncan the Punkin's mother tries to teach him to stay hidden on Halloween so he doesn't get turned into a jack-o-lantern. But being good and hiding in the pumpkin patch all the time is boring, even if it keeps the farmer from taking him away. However, there's another creature lurking on the farm, Skeerdy-Cat-Crow, and he's hungry from hanging on a pole all summer long. A ripe little pumpkin sounds just right to him. But when he visits the pumpkin patch, Mom has a special lesson for both Duncan and Skeerdy-Cat-Crow.

30 full-color pages of rhyming fun, magic, and Halloween mystery, professionally formatted as a read-aloud children's story for the Nook and DRM-free.

Editorial Reviews

Dreadful Tales - Colum McKnight
"I can say with full authority, as a children's book reviewer, that this is one of - if not *the* - best books on the market for the little ones who love their monsters. The art is incredible, the rhyming is timed perfectly, and best of all, it allows the parent to spend much cherished time with their lil' monster. My kids want to read this all the time now."--KINDERSCARES on "If I Were Your Monster"
Author - Jonathan Maberry
"Always surprises and always entertains." - Jonathan Maberry, ROT & RUIN

This is a delightful little book that starts out as a scary story about what not to do when you're a pumpkin on Halloween. The momma pumpkin tries to warn her baby Duncan about how important it is to be still and quiet so he won't get picked in the pumpkin patch. In the end it gives a great moralistic story about behavior. I would definitely recommend this book to ages 5 and up! -Kitty Bullard / Great Minds Think Aloud Book Club
