Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The author dedicates his book to children of all ages who celebrate autumn with a visit to the pumpkin patch. Using very simple language, the dramatic paintings evoke memories and senses of the season. Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes inspire young readers to create their own Halloween magic. Beginning at a pumpkin patch, the reader is taken on a ride to view pumpkin heads of all types. We see a snowman pumpkin, a cowboy, and some jack-o-lanterns peeking from windows. Some are silly and others are scary, some are happy while others are sad. One is even a hot air balloon. Each painting begs to be viewed again and again, making this a wonderful seasonal treat to read year after year. 2000, Blue Sky Press/Scholastic,

PreS-"October is here. It's time to pick a pumpkin!" Minor illustrates this simple text with lush, rich paintings that portray resplendent autumn scenes. Jack-o'-lanterns, small and large, are found on a bench, floating in the air in the form of a hot-air balloon, and on hayrides. Some look like cowboys, snowmen, or a witch; all wish readers a "Happy Halloween." Very large print on creamy ivory pages on the left side stands in contrast to the realistic scenes on the right. This visually stunning book is sure to be a favorite autumn read-aloud.-Doris Gebel, Northport-East Northport Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
