Stumpkin

Written and Illustrated by Lucy Ruth Cummins

“Outside a little ship in a big city, a shopkeeper placed some pumpkins on the shelves.” One by one, the pumpkins disappear and become Jack-O-Lanterns displayed in apartment windows. Finally, only Stumpkin is left. On Halloween, the shopkeeper carries him off. What will become of Stumpkin?

This is a cute Halloween story with black, white, orange and green pictures. It would make a great read aloud. This book is on the Publisher’s Weekly Best of 2018 List.
