Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin Night
Written by Anne Rockwell
Published by Walker & Co., 2001
From the reviewers:
"Rockwell and Halsey have caused an engaging picture book to evolve from their celebration of a simple childhood joy." -Booklist
"A boy is in pursuit of the perfect pumpkin...with his mother handling the knife, they craft a fine jack-o'-lantern that glows mysteriously in the night. Halsey's pretty paper sculptures give the story visual snap, with their intriguing shadow play and sharp relief."- Kirkus Reviews
"The final spreads use gorgeous color combinations as night (deep blue-black paper) falls behind the illuminated jack-o-lantern and house." -Horn Book Guide
From the publisher:
From drawing jack-o-lantern faces to choosing a pumpkin and carving it, this treasured childhood ritual is joyfully captured in an accessible and lively book.
Look for the other Rockwell/Halsey titles!
