99.9% of Kids Will NOT Be Scared By This!
on August 20, 2013
"Duncan the Punkin" by the renowned Scott Nicholson, is a clever rhyme with just a touch of a creepy edge to it, but not enough to scare the little kiddies. Duncan (the punkin) is warned by his mother (also a punkin) to stay hidden in the punkin vines whenever he sees the farmer coming, or he's liable to get picked! If he gets picked, he's likely to get all carved up, and have a candle shoved inside him.
This is actually a cute story/rhyme. The kids will be glad it has a happy ending, and you won't have to worry about them waking you up screaming because they're dreaming about giant farmers cutting out their insides.
As a further incentive, and to qualify this as an "educational" book, Scott concludes the book by telling the kids to inform their parents that "punkin" is really spelled "pumpkin". So you won't even have to worry about them picking up any bad spelling habits from Scott!
This is a fun little book. I recommend it for a family reading around Halloween. Maybe right up until Christmas, depending on what else your kids have to read!
