The Magic Pumpkin

As I was searching online to find more information about the book The Magic Pumpkin by Lucille E. Sette, I couldn't find much. Then I realized of course not- the book was written in 1984! To find this classic, you may have to search through the archives at your local library. It is well worth it, though. We especially love the ending- which I won't tell you, of course.

Here's a sneak peek of one of our favorite Halloween stories: Old Mr. Squiggs is extremely grouchy. He hates everyone, especially children and animals. He even enjoys scaring kids on Halloween. Each year he carves his pumpkin to look scary and ugly and then he waits to listen to the children scream. One year, things change when he picks a very special pumpkin from the patch- a magic pumpkin. Read to find out what happens to mean,old Mr. Squiggs!

I adore my girls smiles as we get to the end of the story. Don't you just love a good ending?

Happy Halloween Reading!

Oh My Gosh! I can not believe you were looking for the Magic Pumpkin. We have had that book in our library at school forever. I read it yesterday for the first time. Wow, too spooky.

I am so glad to hear you back to your regular self. I can't believe only 10 weeks left. Seems like you broke the news to us yesterday.

Take care
