With the Halloween season upon us, I am definitely ready for a cute seasonal story, and this one definitely fit the bill. Into the Pumpkin may be one of the most beautiful Halloween books I have seen. Linda Franklin has created a delightful book with colorful, detailed pictures. It is a charming tale of a Halloween party and all of the invited guests (from spiders to spirits). The party begins with invitations going out, and guests are greeted with a cup of witches brew; soon skeletons begin dancing and ghosts begin singing. In a charming rhyme, the party continues, and Halloween is a delightful night for the pumpkins to celebrate. Although this is a Halloween book, it is so sweet and beautiful that it is definitely worth reading more than just this time of year!
