Pick a Pumpkin by Patricia Toht, illustrated by Jarvis

Pick a Pumpkin by Patricia Toht, illustrated by Jarvis, available in paperback where all good books are sold! 

It’s Halloween! Which means it's time to dangle cobwebs and bats from the windows, put on costumes, and – most important of all – visit the pumpkin patch and pick out that perfect pumpkin! 

Then cart it home, scoop out the insides, carve a scary face, and finally light a candle inside, transforming it into a one-of-a-kind, glowing jack-o’-lantern...

With warm, autumnal art, this is the perfect book to share by flickering candlelight on the spookiest night of the year.


“[…] perfectly captures that sense of misty autumnal days […] Warm autumnal colours and a rhythmic rhyming text capture the fun and excitement of Halloween.” - The Bookseller, Children's Previews

"Sumptuous production... this feels like a real treat of a book – as sweet as a toffee apple and as warm as hot chocolate. It's one to share on a crisp October night and to treasure, year after year." - BookTrust
