Pumpkins

Ken Robbins; Illustrated by the author

Roaring Brook Press

From late summer to Thanksgiving, pumpkins are everywhere, a symbol of fall and a reminder of the holidays to come. In this handsome book, Ken Robbins--widely known for his sumptuous photo-essays on subjects ranging from trucks to tools to autumn leaves--portrays the pumpkin from seed, to sprout, to flower, to fully fledged fruit, and back again. Instructions are given to (safely) carve a jack-o'-lantern. As always in a book by Ken Robbins, a simple--but never simplisitc--text is accompanied by luscious photographs.
