From late summer to Thanksgiving, pumpkins are everywhere, a symbol of fall and a reminder of the holidays to come. In this handsome book, Ken Robbins--widely known for his sumptuous photo-essays on subjects ranging from trucks to tools to autumn leaves--portrays the pumpkin from seed, to sprout, to flower, to fully fledged fruit, and back again. Instructions are given to (safely) carve a jack-o'-lantern. As always in a book by Ken Robbins, a simple--but never simplisitc--text is accompanied by luscious photographs.
In a career spanning twenty-five years and more than two dozen books, KEN ROBBINS has established himself as one of our foremost creators of nonfiction books for young children. He lives in East Hampton, New York.
