In brilliant images and an easy-to-understand text, Schwartz and Kuhn tell the story of what happens to a Jack O' Lantern after Halloween. Compost won't mean the same thing after you've seen the amazing transformation of Jack from grinning pumpkin to mold-mottled wreckage to hopeful green shoot. Part story, part science, and a whole lot of fun.
