Big Pumpkin
by Erica Silverman


by Erica Silverman; ill. by SD Schindler

A witch has grown a huge pumpkin ever and wants to make a pumpkin pie, but it's so big she can't get it off the vine. The ghost can't move it either, or the vampire, or the mummy. Will there be no pumpkin pie for Halloween? Or...does the tiny bat have an idea?  A cumulative tale based on a classic Russian folktale.

School Library Journal called this book "a rollicking, amusing Halloween tale" and Publisher's Weekly called it "a fine combination of fright and fun."
