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

'Jarvis’ illustration is absolutely remarkable, and its soft retro-styled beauty makes this book really stand out – especially the Christmas tree spread at the end.' BookTrust

'Featured in The Bookseller's September Previews.' The Bookseller
