In this handsome book a clear text, simple but never simplistic, describes the growing cycle of this harbinger of autumn and symbol of Halloween - from seed, to sprout, to flower, to fully fledged fruit, and back again. Instructions are given on how to carve your own jack-o'lantern (with the help of an adult). And, as always in a book by Ken Robbins, words are accompanied by luscious, full-color photographs that will captivate readers both young and old.
