Pumpkin Magic

Pumpkin Magic

Join playful pumpkins on a magical Halloween adventure!

"Lonely pumpkin on a stair, glowing in the chilly air.
Moonbeam magic lights a spark. Pumpkin rises in the dark!
Pumpkin bouncing down the street, looking for a friend to greet."

With a little moonlight magic, these pumpkins come to life and set off on a raucous adventure in this laugh-out-loud rhyming adventure! Each page turn reveals new whimsical delights and giggles, as pumpkins trick-or-treat, have a food fight, and dress up in silly outfits. As daylight comes, the pumpkins roll back home, waiting until the moonbeams shine just right... and it's time again to romp all through the night!

With bold, expressive, whimsical illustrations from Nate Wragg, and delightful rhyming text from Ed Masessa, this title is sure to be a go-to Halloween favorite for laughs galore.

Praise for Wandmaker:

"Masessa delivers a fast-paced, entertaining tale filled with humor and magical action, playfully referencing (and toying with) tropes popularized by Harry Potter (Voldemort never suffered half of the indignities that are perpetrated on Dai She, and Dumbledore never flew coach across the Atlantic). This is a clever, twisty story with plenty of potential for future installments." -- Publishers Weekly"
