Christopher Pumpkin

We rated this book:


A witch wants to have a scary party, but there is too much work to do. So she casts a spell on her pumpkins to turn them into workers. She names the pumpkins Gnarly, Grizzly, Grunty, Roar, Snaggletooth, Stink Face, and Christopher. Christopher isn’t like any of the other pumpkins, who are scary and mean. Christopher is nice, lovey, and happy. The witch gives Christopher a chance to make ghastly decorations. He has until the morning to decorate and work harder, or else she will turn him into pumpkin soup. Will Christopher Pumpkin be able to plan a frightful party?

This book was cute. I thought the part where the pumpkins make some stinky food was funny, especially the part about the green cheese made from old underwear. I like how Christopher Pumpkin is different, and in the end, how he did his best. I recommend this book to kids who like Halloween stories and to those who like stories about being yourself even though you are different. Don’t worry, this Halloween story is not scary for little kids.
