It's Halloween and there's pumpkin trouble afoot. Can Pig and Mouse escape from the Pumpkin Monster?

From Can You Make a Scary Face? to Let's Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy, I love Jan Thomas' books. Her Halloween-themed book Pumpkin Trouble doesn't disappoint!

Duck is super-excited to carve a pumpkin. He gets so into it that he actually falls into the pumpkin! When he stands up, the pumpkin is on his head, hiding him from view. His friends, Pig and Mouse, don't recognize him and instead think that this pumpkin creature is a Pumpkin Monster. When Pig and Mouse try to run away from the Pumpkin Monster, a hilarious adventure ensues. The comical illustrations and dialogue make this book a great read-aloud to share with kids!
