***In celebration of one of my favorite times of the year, come join the fun as I romp through adorable holiday themed picture books every day from now until the end of the month as we count down to Halloween***
Title: Night Of The Pumkinheads
Author: Michael J Rosen
Illustrator: Hugh McMahon
Publisher: Dial Books For Young Readers
Ages: 4 to 8
Synopsis: Year after year, the pumpkinheads have sat on the porch while kids had all the trick-or-treating fun. But this year, it's trick-or-treat mayhem as the pumpkinheads join in. Hold on to your candy...the pumkinheads are coming to town!
Why you should read it: Now that I've expanded into writing creative nonfiction, I enjoy seeing how other authors incorporate story telling into the nonfiction arena. While the story will delight young readers everywhere, I believe it's Hugh McMahon's expertise as a master pumpkin carver that takes this delightful Halloween tale to a whole other level of entertainment. I found myself spending extra time simply staring at the wonderful detail put into every carving and there is even instructions at the end on how to carve a uniquely cool pumpkin of your own!
