Night of the Pumpkinheads by Michael J. Rosen - ESSENTIAL

Rosen, Michael J. Night of the Pumpkinheads, carvings by Hugh McMahon.  Dial (Penguin), 2011.  $17.  PICTURE BOOK.  

The pumpkins in the patch are sick and tired of their jack-o-lantern faces and want to be really creative this Halloween, coming up with their own creative costumes and trying to scare the children.  

Hugh McMahon obviously loves carving pumpkins, because he has created a treasure of awesome pumpkin-ness.  And Michael Rosen is no slouch at plotting a creative way to show off McMahon’s work.
