Gr 4-6–Carving a pumpkin is a yearly tradition for many, and this book adds to the occasion. It starts with instructions for how to carve a basic Halloween pumpkin, and the projects get progressively harder as the book continues. Cute illustrations of pumpkins and jack-o’-lanterns sit alongside easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. Readers can also learn how to create bird feeders out of pumpkins, and set up pumpkins as floral containers. The list of supplies included with each project is welcome and needed, and the pumpkin puree recipe at the end of the book is a nice touch. The author gives just enough instruction to inspire readers to think outside the pumpkin.
VERDICT Simple, easy, and well-designed. Pumpkin carving is popular, and this book may inspire crafty carvers to take their designs to the next level.
