Pumpkin Story Books


You might love to read a great story of the Pumpkin Jack, an awesome narration of the pumpkin who survives the end of Halloween season. This is a unique anecdote of a pumpkin that lives beyond the fall season, a very different tale from the common gory and terrifying stories rampant at Halloween. Cute and sweet, the kids are definitely going to fall in love with Jack and the little boy. The little boy instead of throwing the pumpkin in a garbage bin allows it to rot in the backyard. A beautiful tale that depicts the nature – complete death and birth cycle from a tiny vine to the big orange pumpkin told with a learning and a message of revival.


Or read the story of a pumpkin who transforms from a seed to mighty large pumpkin told in an interesting way, which will never tire your kid. Who knows the kid might read it again to his/her child rejoicing it once again when the time comes for Halloween fast-forward in future.


Another amazing story of an ugly pumpkin that is neglected and rejected finds it out in an unexpected turn of events, how he is unique and rare from others. The fundamental principle that nothing in Nature is trivial however small it is and there are ways of nurturing these trifling, petty things for a greater usage is the underlying morale of such stories. Making fun and jeering is another wrong-doing where we make the life of others and potential geniuses troubled and difficult are other stories told in relation to pumpkin tales that will make your festival more Halloweeny.


You are sure to learn something new in the story or the theme completely re-told in a novel way. Enjoy the simple joys of life this Halloween in Pumpkin books and pictures. Satisfying and bringing out a different perspective, your kids and grand-kids will love engaging with pumpkins in the seemingly frivolous tales, but thrilling and exciting.

Have you read Pumpkin Cat by author Ann Turner and illustrator Amy June Bates? It's about a ginger cat who refuges in the book return bin and then in the children's room of a local library.

Pumpkin drinks and edibles are the familial, traditional way to celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving with us here!

The grocery store where I shop had a lovely price on petite, pumpkin-pie pumpkins end September-beginning October.

So Halloween will involve my favorite pumpkins with their tops removed and serving as hot containers for carrot soup and for mixed vegetables. There also will be pumpkin pie and pumpkin shells with carved, non-scary faces and, inside, candied pumpkin.

What spices would you suggest for pumpkin as dessert, drink, soup or vegetable?

We make funny faces and other stuff. I am thinking to carve a carriage for Cinderella this year...
