Description

Pumpkin Shivaree

In the spring, a small silver seed is planted in the garden. By fall, it's a full-grown pumpkin on a long vine. The careful and accurate depiction of the development of a pumpkin - from seed to sprout to flower to fruit - is followed by a description of a wonderfully raucous Halloween romp so full of life and fun that the reader feels like the guest of honor!
The lyrical text by poet Rick Agran provides the perfect basis for Sara Anderson's clear, colorful cut-paper art, also used to brilliant effect in Hey Diddle Diddle, A Felt Read-And-Play Book. Pumpkin Shivaree brings to young readers not only solid information and the sense of a rollicking good party, but it also helps to convey the excitement that is generated over and over by Halloween, one of children's favorite holidays.
