The Runaway Pumpkin

This holiday treat includes two stories for Halloween. The Runaway Pumpkin is a rollicking rhyming tall tale about a giant pumpkin that rolls downhill to create havoc on a family farm below. The story ends with a pumpkin feast at the family dinner table presided over by a giant Jack-o-Lantern. Pumpkin Heads! is a celebration of pumpkins, Jack-o-Lanterns and Halloween. The breathtaking pictures celebrate the joys of the holiday, and the evocative text is presented as a read-along option to reinforce reading skills.
