Pick a Pumpkin

By Patricia Toht

Illustrated by Jarvis

Pick a pumpkin from the patch – tall and lean or short and fat. Vivid orange, ghostly white, or speckled green, might be just right...

Illustrated by the winner of the V&A Best Illustrated Book 2017 It’s Halloween! Which means it's time to dangle cobwebs and bats from the windows, put on costumes, and – most important of all – visit the pumpkin patch and pick out that perfect pumpkin! Then cart it home, scoop out the insides, carve a scary face, and finally light a candle inside, transforming it into a one-of-a-kind, glowing jack-o’-lantern... With warm, autumnal art, and a rhythmic read-aloud text that captures all the excitement and familial feeling of Halloween, this is the perfect book to share by flickering candlelight on the spookiest night of the year.

Reviews

'“[…] perfectly captures that sense of misty autumnal days […] Warm autumnal colours and a rhythmic rhyming text capture the fun and excitement of Halloween.”' The Bookseller, Children’s Previews

'Sumptuous production from Walker Books, this feels like a real treat of a book – as sweet as a toffee apple and as warm as hot chocolate. It's one to share on a crisp October night and to treasure, year after year.' BookTrust

'The book is a wonderful rhyming book which goes along the journey of picking a pumpkin and taking it to the final steps of carving and making it into a jack o lantern. The book even says Happy Halloween at the end which gives the perfect ending to it. The book is also filled with stunning halloween scenes and lovely pumpkin illustrations. Can't beat it for a book to read this October.' Lily's Little Learners
