Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

In a companion to Five Little Pumpkins, the gourds (each with a carved jack-o'-lantern face) return. Yaccarino offers a variation on the popular nursery rhyme, counting from one to five with bold blue and orange Halloween- and harvest-themed art. But it's not ghosts that make the pumpkins anxious to roll out of town: "The fourth one said,/ ‘I don't want to be a pie!'/ So the fifth one said,/ ‘Goodbye!/ Goodbye!/ Goodbye!'?" Yaccarino offers just the right mix of humor and scares for the very youngest readers. Ages up to 4. (July) Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly.
