I saw this book on Netgalley and had to grab it. Its a great beginner's carving book that covers tools, techniques, and even has a few patterns. Some of the techniques covered are traditional carving, luminaries, embellishing, painting, and etching. The book briefly describes some of the different pumpkins and gourds that can be used for carving and decorating as well. There are some great ideas and photographs that we found inspiring and even educational with the fun facts added.
Overall, its a great book for beginners with some creative inspiration for anyone.

Few in pages, but long on information and helpful information. I never new pumpkins came in more than orange and recently I found white ones. I new they were in the gourd family, but never thought of them as having odd shapes and how to use them, but Colleen Dorsey has and shared them with us. With detailed photographs showing the details and finished pumpkins and numerous techniques shown and explained this is a book that will be used often and year after year.
My rating of "Easy Pumpkin Carving - Spooktacular Patterns, Tips & Ideas" is 5 out of 5 stars.
