Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There does not appear to be any logic to this Halloween story. Little Pumpkin is still sitting in the patch. He dreams of being picked and taken into a home to become a jack-o'-lantern, but a squirrel who lives nearby informs Little Pumpkin that this will never happen because he is still green. Kids want orange pumpkins to take home and carve, but then a wise old owl, offers to take Little Pumpkin to his home in a tree. Then the story really takes a strange twist. On Halloween night, Little Pumpkin glows, and if you do not believe it just press the section on the page that makes this pumpkin light up with a bright yellow glow. The back cover notes "…something wonderful happens that is sure to warm your heart and light up your Halloween." No rhyme, no reason, it just happens. If you are looking for a Halloween book that gives kids something to play with, this may be your choice. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
