Sign up for my Tao of Boo newsletter for giveaways, free books, and announcements of new releases: http://eepurl.com/tOE89.

I believe the writer only creates half the story, and that you complete it by bringing your imagination, experience, and heart to the tale. I am happy to share the journey with you.

I've written more than 20 novels, about 80 short stories, four children's books, some comic books, screenplays, and a couple of non-fiction books, as well as five collaborations with J.R. Rain. Many of my tales are based on supernatural legends from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and I also write mystery and suspense thrillers that are most often compared to the work of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

I've also published Liquid Fear and Chronic Fear with Amazon's Thomas & Mercer imprint and McFall with 47North, as well as a number of audiobooks and foreign translations. I love hearing from you, because you're the reason I do this, so let's connect! Learn more about my work at www.AuthorScottNicholson.com

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.

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.

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!

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.

Duncan The Punkin By Scott Nicholson and Sergio Castro.
Synopsis: 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.
My Review:
I do Love Children's "Holiday Books" and Duncan The Punkin Delivers! This is a delightful story of A "Punkin" at Halloween time and His Mother trying to teach him to be safe during this season. The telling of the story is in Rhyme and the Pictures are Just perfect! The Brilliant mind of this Author shines through this wonderful story of Mother's concern and a Child's curiosity .. I highly recommend this book for EVERYONE ! It makes a great bedtime story , a great story for a parent read at school or even a children's library group.. I give 'Duncan the Punkin" 5 Bright Orange "Punkins" soooooo cute and well done!!

What a cute story. I liked it and thought it is a good book for children. The illustrations are very creative, too. I personally think that kids would enjoy it, and read it more than once!
