The diaper-wearing baby from Patricelli’s Toot, Tickle, and other board books gets its first taste of Halloween, from pumpkin carving to costume choosing. In the book’s funniest moment, Baby dismisses “too small” and “too big” pumpkins for one that’s “just right”—it’s the exact size and shape of Baby’s head, down to a squiggly stem that mirrors Baby’s single curly hair. (Admittedly, this makes the subsequent pumpkin-carving scenes just a tad creepy.) Patricelli honestly explores the frights and excitements that Halloween first-timers often feel, but she keeps the dial firmly set to fun. Up to age 3. Agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (July)
