Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"Peter's looking for a pumpkin, a perfect plumply, dumply pumpkin. Not a lumpy, bumpy pumpkin. Not a stumpy, grumpy pumpkin, but a sunny, sumptuous pumpkin." And given how gosh-darn cute Peter is--as gosh-darn cute as a young tiger can get, really--you'll instantly find yourself pulling for him as he goes out into the fields to get his gorgeous gourd.

But Peter's dramatic character arc doesn't really occur until he's got his perfect pumpkin in hand (or paw, rather): "Why does Peter want a pumpkin? Want a showy, glowy pumpkin?" Could it be for pumpkin pickles or pumpkin pie? Pumpkin pudding or pumpkin fry? Nope. He's soon drawing in eyes, and a chin, and "a plumply, dumply grin." Then with a little help from his dad (also quite cute, note the family resemblance), Peter proves that "perfect pumpkins really do make perfect jack-o'-lanterns, too."

Plumply Dumply Pumpkin is a fun, short Halloween romp from the happy pen of Mary Serfozo (Who Said Red?, What's What? A Guessing Game), ably aided by illustrator italiana Valeria Petrone (Ducks in Muck), whose bright, giddy brushstrokes propel Peter on his airy way. (Ages 3 to 6) --Paul Hughes

From Publishers Weekly

Appealing wordplay and autumnal colors lend warmth to this tiger tale. Peter, an orange cub with an upturned grin, wouldn't pick just any pumpkin: "Not a stumpy, grumpy pumpkin,/ but a sunny, sumptuous pumpkin." He chooses a bounteous specimen, carves it and wins a contest, for "Perfect pumpkins really do/ make perfect jack-o-lanterns, too." Serfozo's (Who Said Red?) stumbly, bubbly tongue-twisters complement Petrone's (Ducks in the Muck) adroit digital illustrations, which mimic paint swooshes of violet, harvest gold and orange. Peter is a charmer. Ages 3-6.

This is an excellent halloween book for kids ages 2-4. Peter the tiger goes and picks the perfect pumpkin, then goes home and turns it into a prize-winning jack o'lantern. The illustrations are bold, colorful, and delightful. This one is sure to add to your holiday cheer.

Format: Paperback
We love this book for both my 1 year old and 5 year old. The rhyming and alliteration are just great! The flow of the words is very sing-songy and fits perfectly together. The storyline is fun and the pictures are very pleasing to the kids. Great book!
