Overview
Every year, giant pumpkin contests take place at fairs across the country--the 2012 record-holder weighed over a ton The latest craze is to carve the most enormous pumpkins into racing boats. But what's next? Why not think really big? Award-winning artist Wendell Minor does just that as he imagines larger-than-life pumpkins decorating some of America's favorite places--as immense as the Capitol dome, Mount Rushmore, the Brooklyn Bridge, even the Grand Canyon This celebration of famous landmarks and landscapes plays with concepts of size and scale and is full of fun facts.

Halloween is a day that sets imaginations spinning, and Minor encourages some pumpkin-themed thought experiments of his own—while boosting kids’ vocabularies and giving them a brief tour of the U.S. to boot. Minor’s dramatic gouache and watercolor paintings take center stage as he asks readers to consider the possibilities of a nation full of giant pumpkins. “Your gigantic pumpkin could glow like the skyscrapers,” he writes as a smiley jack-o’-lantern perches on the Brooklyn Bridge; “Would your giant pumpkin be boss in a jumbo cowboy hat?” he continues as a pumpkin with star-shaped eye holes nestles among Texas oil rigs. A picture book as American as pumpkin pie. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)
