I love reading this Halloween story to my daughter. We read it all throughout the year and she now participates in reading it with me. We've been reading it for 3 years and she still loves it!

I run a day care and this book kept the interest of 5 children all under the age of 3. My daughter who is 2.5 asks for me to read this book to her atleast 20 times a day. I love it and would recommend it to anyone..

I was thrilled to have stumbled upon The Runaway Pumpkin. Kevin Lewis is the author of Chugga, Chugga, Choo, Choo my son¿s favorite baby book. Thus, I knew it was going to be great even before reading the first page. The pulse is addictive, so much so I find myself humming it hours later ~ the cadence is wonderful! S.D. Schindler is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists of children¿s books. He illustrated some of my favorite Halloween books: Big Pumpkin, Skeleton Hiccups, One Witch, and now The Runaway Pumpkin. His work is special, because he captivates his audience with rich, and humorous details. Adults will love reading this book for the fantastic illustrations, and humor.
