It is always a delight to read a poem by Charles Ghigna, no matter what the context. But a poem in Easy Reader form, about pumpkins, and read in mid-October? That is enchanting. This poem is about pumpkins, so, as expected, Hallowe'en makes an appearance, but this is not a poem about Hallowe'en. It is perfect for reading now, almost three weeks before Hallowe'en, and it will be perfect for reading well into November. Unlike most Easy Reader books, Ghigna wrote a poem suited for young readers; he did not write an Easy Reader book in forced verse. There is a difference: one is poetry, the other is doggerel. Kenneth Spengler's illustrations are perfectly suited for the text. They convey so much joy and delight that they make me want to make a pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bread, or pumpkin cookies.
A delightful book about my favorite dessert - pumpkin pie! Wonderful rhyming book for your children. Colorful artwork and easy to read pace.
