    This one's a mildly interesting story about a boy who loves his Halloween pumpkin so much, that he keeps it in his room until it starts to rot. Then he takes it outside and puts it in the garden; over the passing seasons, the pumpkin keeps rotting until it's nothing but a pile of seeds and a stem. In spring, the seeds sprout a pumpkin patch and the boy harvests the pumpkins in fall for all of his friends. The illustrations are large format and the text is not too intensive. Would be good for a school age storytime - a not too Halloweeny Halloween storytime.

    This is the perfect story to read in the fall when kindergartners and first graders are studying pumpkins and apples. Will Hubbell's explanation of the pumpkin's life cycle is engaging and easy for young students to understand. Through Tim's eyes, they can see Pumpkin Jack stand proudly at Halloween, slowly start to decay, get covered by snow in the winter, and re-emerge in the spring, first as a sprout that Tim cares for and ultimately as a thriving plant that produces pumpkins for Tim and all of his friends for the next Halloween. Wonderful curriculum tie-ins and a nice fall story to boot!

    This is a favorite of ours year after year. The story is a wonderful illustration of a pumpkin (as jack-o-lantern) gradually composting in a boy's backyard throughout the seasons of the year. In the Spring some leftover seeds inside, sprout from the muck, and the cycle continues. Very, very simple and short illustration of this cycle in the form of an enjoyable story. The illustrations are wonderful.

    Tim carves his first pumpkin in this warmhearted and engaging seasonal picture-book, and creates a jack-o-lantern that is "fierce, funny, and just right." Naming this glowing figure Jack, Tim keeps the pumpkin with him for as long as he can, well past Halloween night itself. Finally, when the pumpkin begins to rot, he is forced to take it outside, leaving it in the backyard where it slowly disintegrates. Is this the end, or does Pumpkin Jack have a few more surprises in store...?Although Halloween is certainly the focal point of author/illustrator Will Hubbell's Pumpkin Jack - the story begins and ends with this autumn holiday, covering the events of one year - there is plenty of winter, spring and summer appeal as well. This makes sense, as the narrative developments emphasize the cyclical nature, not just of a pumpkin's life, but of the human calendar. Everything comes full circle here, as the seeds from the original Jack give rise to a new pumpkin plant, and eventually, to new pumpkins, just as Tim himself returns to the Halloween custom of carving a jack-o-lantern. Recommended to anyone looking for stories about pumpkins, Halloween, and the cycle of life.
