    The title doesn t make sense A shivaree is a noisy mock serenade for newlyweds Merriam Webster The text was slightly jarring in places, and certain phrases sentences don t make much sense, even with the illustrations to help Pistil and stamen Tickle of six little feet Whose feet What kids knows what a pistil and stamen are And why aren t they clearly illustrated if this is supposed to be a teaching moment I also don t think kids are going to fall for the idea that having its insides scooped out and pieces of it carved off is a fun experience for a pumpkin There are a lot of great Halloween pumpkin picture books out there, so this one can be skipped.

    My daughter chose this book as the first to be read from a pile of seven I totally think she likes color and this book has a great mix of contrasting colors The story is simple, but the illustrations make it rich I picked the book for the colors as well P

    I think this is a great book I love the end especially I don t care for some of pictures like the people with no faces and the one showing the pumpkin grow It was a little visually overwhelming.
