Book Description

A magical bedtime story for all ages.

Halloween is coming, and Duncan the Punkin's mom teaches him to hide in the pumpkin patch so he doesn't get turned into a jack-o-lantern. Being good is boring, and Duncan's not afraid of any old farmer. But someone else has been keeping an eye on the pumpkin patch. Skeerdy-Cat-Crow has been hanging on a pole all summer, and now he's hungry. He's heard nice little pumpkins are just right. But Mom knows a trick that will teach both Skeerdy-Cat-Crow and Duncan something new.

Features 30 color pages (will appear in black-and-white on Kindles) of rhyming fun, magic, and Halloween mystery. Scott Nicholson is author of the children's books IF I WERE YOUR MONSTER and TOO MANY WITCHES, as well as 20 books for adults. Sergio Castro has illustrated for the comic books LITTLE SHIVERS, DREAMBOAT, and GRAVE CONDITIONS.

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming tale for both children and adults February 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Duncan the Punkin was a charming children's picture book, told from the point of view of..what else..a pumpkin! I loved how Scott Nicholson personified the pumpkins, and described what they have to worry about at Halloween. I read it with my eight year old son who was utterly charmed by the story as well as the illustrations. This is a wonderful children's book but I enjoyed the story just as much as my son did. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays and reading this as a bedtime story that night is going to be a tradition from now on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutest punkin ever May 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
It was the cutest book I had ever seen, Starting out as a warning to all pumpkins on Halloween and how to live longer on their vines. I read this to my daughter. She's six and she loved it so much I had to re-read it several times before she would agree to let it rest and we could move on to another one.

I think this a perfect story for young children and one that would even hold a fond memory for a parent to read to their child especially around Halloween.

As my daughter says " I loved it."

I try not to read anything about a book if it's by an author I'm familiar with before downloading or reading, so actually had no idea this was a picture book, I'd assumed it was a horror short story. Obviously all picture books are short stories and this one has a mild horror theme to it so I was somewhat right, but I was pleasantly surprised to have something with great colourful illustrations as well. Duncan the Punkin is basically the tale of a pumpkin whose mother warns it to stay still and pretend its dead so it doesn't get picked when the farmer is selecting which pumpkins to harvest. Of course when a scarecrow gets sick of it's everyday routine Duncan's ability to follow its mother's advice will be tested. Along the way there is some brilliant descriptive (although still child friendly) imagination scenes told by the mother of what happens to pumpkins who don't listen to the rules of survival. I'm not sure why Scott Nicholson and Sergio Castro decided to misspell pumpkin and it doesn't really add anything to the story, it is deliberate though they acknowledge it on the final page. All up the book will take you a couple of minutes to get through, but you will spend longer than that admiring the great artwork on each page.

I had no idea Scott Nicholson even wrote picture books, but after enjoying this so much I'll definitely check out the other two he has also written.

A beautiful picture book for Kids with Kindles ... or a Granny with Kindle for MAC. A cute story about a small pumpkin whose mother tries to teach him to stay hidden in the pumpkin patch for safety. A good message with beautiful illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars SCOTT NICHOLSON'S "DUNCAN THE PUNKIN" (A REVIEW) May 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a delightful little book that starts out as a scary story about what not to do when you're a pumpkin on Halloween. The momma pumpkin tries to warn her baby Duncan about how important it is to be still and quiet so he won't get picked in the pumpkin patch. In the end it gives a great moralistic story about behavior.

I would definitely recommend this book to ages 5 and up!
