Peter, the Paranoid Pumpkin (Ha Ha Holidays)
There is a pumpkin named Peter who is scared of Halloween. He is scared that the kids dressed up in costumes aren’t actually kids but the monsters they are dressed up as. He is afraid that the black cat that walks by him will turn into a witch! He feels anxious about everything. He wishes the other pumpkins around him would smile, and then he might feel better. He is scared of the candy because he might get fat. At the end of the story, he realized that it was all just his imagination. He took some deep breaths and calmed down.
I liked looking at the pictures because they are so pretty; I liked seeing the pages with the black cat on them. I didn’t know what anxious or paranoid meant, but after reading this book, I do now. I don’t feel anxious very often, but I learned from Peter what to do when I do feel anxious next time. I think that this is a good book to read on Halloween because it has scary pumpkins and monsters. I also think this is a good book to read any other time because it teaches you that you don’t have to be scared.
