Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A playful lift-the-flap, seek-and-find pumpkin tale with gentle Halloween images. To simple verse by the late Kroll, a bevy of intergenerational, anthropomorphic mice visit a farm stand at harvest time, tend to a pumpkin patch, decorate a suburban block for the season, go trick-or-treating and gaze upon a gigantic jack-o'-lantern. Despite a wobble in meter at the end, the rhyming text sets the mood and invites interaction. "We all love pumpkins. There are so many kinds. How many pumpkins can you find?" Young readers will enjoy poring over Bassett's loose, double-page–spread watercolor tableaux and lifting the flaps to count the various pumpkins tucked away. The relatively sturdy flaps blend in nicely with each scene, but this makes them a little tricky to find and lift without adult help. Most of the flaps provide satisfaction when opened, particularly the giant, ghost-costumed "pumpkin surprise" finale. Festive and fun. (Board book. 2-4)
