Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In a book reminiscent of Beatrix Potter's art, Tudor relates a very simple story of little Sylvie Ann's hunt for a big fat pumpkin. When she finds the golden treasure, it is too big to carry so she rolls it home. Unfortunately, the pumpkin goes out of control and causes a bit of disruption. Sylvie apologizes to all and, with her Grandpawp's help she creates a really fearsome jack-o-lantern which she calls Pumpkin Moonshine. In this reissue, the pages are bordered in a pale golden orange with the delicate watercolors inset on the left of each spread. The initial letter of the text is decorated like an illuminated manuscript but using only the deeper orange and black. A sweet story that harkens back to days long gone. 2000 (orig. 1938), Simon and Schuster, $12.95. Ages 3 to 9. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Childrens Book Watch
Tasha Tudor's Pumpkin Moonshine provides an excellent Halloween story about little SylvieAnn, who finds the biggest pumpkin, then struggles to get it home. The Tudor illustrations are small but classic embellishments. Mary Pope Osborne's Kate And The Beanstalk (82550-1, $16.00) receives Giselle Potter's odd but appealing large illustrations as it provides a different take-off on Jack's beanstalk experiences. The woman's point of view both below and above the stalk makes for hilarious reading for kids with good reading skills. Mary Casanova's Hunter (82906-X, $16.95) benefits from illustrations by Ed Young as it retells a classic Chinese folk story of a hunter who faces drought as he struggles to help his little village. Hilary Knight's Where's Wallace? (83992-8, $17.00) provides a take-off on the Waldo theme as it tells of an outrageous orangutan who wants to see the world beyond his zoo. Black and white and color illustrations blend in this presentation.
