It's October 31 and, under a bright orange moon, something strange is about to happen...

The trick-or-treaters have gone to bed, but the fun really begins when the jack-o'-lanterns all decide that there's more to life than sitting on the porch. As midnight strikes, carved pumpkins gather by the hundreds, joined by ghosts and witches from far and wide. They gallivant through the countryside, have a big party in the town square, and leave enough evidence behind to thoroughly confuse the townspeople when they awake the next morning.

Full of superbly surreal illustrations, this nearly wordless picture book features an embossed image of the grinning Pumpkin Moon on the cover, setting the mood for the wild magic that waits inside for Halloween enthusiasts of all ages.

Slick production, heavy paper, an oversized (9 ¾ x 12 ¾ inches) format, and a handsome, stylized, 1950s sci-fi film look combine for a simple yet clever celebration of America's favorite autumn holiday.
