*Pie Of Course A Witch *of course a witch a pumpkin seed in her garden in this charming Halloween tale carefully tending the plant which springs from it and watching it as it slowly develops into a massive gourd But when the pumpkin proves too large to move by herself the witch is forced much against her inclination to accept the offers of help made by a passing ghost vampire and mummy Despite these ghoulish assistants the pumpkin stubbornly stays put until a tiny bat flies by and has a bright ideaAs a confirmed pumpkin pie lover I also enjoy pumpkin bread pumpkin soup roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin whoopie pies it was a foregone conclusion that I would appreciate Erica Silverman s Big Pumpkin which introduces the traditional monsters of. Loween But the pumpkin is so big she can't get it off the vine It’s so big the ghost can’t move it either Neither can the vampire nor the mummy It looks as if there’ll be no. The season in a gentle non threatening way The message of the book that it is effective as well as fun to work together is a welcome one particularly as it doesn t overwhelm the story itself The accompanying illustrations done by SD Schindler in gouache are spooky but not too spooky and fun All in all this is a winner when it comes to Halloween fare for younger readers and I m glad that it was chosen as one of our October selections in the Picture Book Club to which #I Belong Where Our Theme #belong where our theme witches and monsters What an awesome story All my kids loved this one the 6 yr old as well as my preschoolers My 3 yr old twins are still scared of a lot especially Halloween stuff and when they saw the witch I could see the hesitation in their eyes But they loved it once they realized it was about all the scary characters of Halloween working together So much fun and they fought over who was going to read it first later on Lots of fun Highly recommended I really liked this book it is very Halloweeny The colors are nice and the story is original It s about a witch that grew a pumpkin to make pumpkin pie for Halloween The pumpkin is too big and she needs help from her friends to bring it
