Pumpkin Orange, Pumpkin Round
A rhyming Halloween romp with a family of cozy cats
Pumpkin orange, pumpkin round / Pumpkin hiding, pumpkin found!
What could be better than an autumn trip to the pumpkin patch with a cast of cat characters ready to celebrate Halloween? In bouncy rhyme, the folksy felines choose their pumpkins, wheel them home, and work together through all the steps of carving a jack-o-lantern. With the lanterns’ spooky and cheerful faces shining bright, now is the time to dress up and head out for trick-or-treating.
Tara Anderson, the award-winning illustrator of Nat the Cat Can Sleep Like That, depicts cozy and charming fall scenes in Pumpkin Orange, Pumpkin Round. Infectious rhymes by debut children’s author Rosanna Battigelli will make this a favorite in any season.

What I Liked: This simple board book embodies all the joys of getting ready for Halloween. The cats enjoy time at a pumpkin patch, carving their pumpkin, dressing in costume, getting treats, and happily cuddling in their bed. Young children will be able to identify with these events and get excited about the fun holiday season. The illustrations are done in colored pencil, making it a relatable medium for children to enjoy. Overall, this is a book that preschool children will enjoy and want to read again and again.
