Happy Meow-loween Little Pumpkin

Sourcebooks Wonderland. (Punderland). Aug. 2021. 24p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9781728223346.
Toddler-PreS–With the opening line of “Hey, little pumpkin—you sure are a treat!” this board book highlights the sweet and cuddly side of Halloween. Featuring diminutive and squeezable ghosts, bats, vampires, and mummies, it is peppered with puns to keep parent and child alike engaged. When the narrator declares that “When you’re wrapped in my arms, you make me feel complete,” the following page shows a mummy parent and child hugging, all wrapped up in their bandages. And so it goes throughout. The text is mainly done in the classic Halloween orange, but certain words are displayed in a bold white, giving readers a clue as to what the next page will reveal.
VERDICT Another adorable board book in the “Punderland” series, this will be a perfect for reading aloud to little ones. Recommended for purchase.
