Pick a Pumpkin Summary

Pick a Pumpkin by Patricia Toht

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.

Pick a Pumpkin 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. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
