pumpkin 2Movie:  It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown    

Description:  Will this Halloween be the one when the Great Pumpkin comes? Longtime believer Linus thinks so, and keeps watch all night in the pumpkin patch to welcome him. Charlie Brown gets into the spooky spirit too, dressing up as a ghost with more eyeholes than needed, but not scaring up the usual kinds of Halloween loot when trick-or-treating. Never fear, World War I fighting ace Snoopy is here to battle the Red Baron, and in doing so, crash Violet’s Halloween party and Linus’ vigil as well. Your whole family will be glad it crashed this party. Good grief, you can’t help but have a happy Halloween!

pumpkinsPumpkins by Robbins, Ken 

Amazon’s Description: From late summer to Thanksgiving, pumpkins are everywhere, a symbol of fall and a reminder of the holidays to come. In this handsome book, Ken Robbins–widely known for his sumptuous photo-essays on subjects ranging from trucks to tools to autumn leaves–portrays the pumpkin from seed, to sprout, to flower, to fully fledged fruit, and back again. Instructions are given to (safely) carve a jack-o’-lantern. As always in a book by Ken Robbins, a simple–but never simplisitc–text is accompanied by luscious photographs.
