It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse!

It's Pumpkin Day, Mouse!

by Laura Joffe Numeroff Illustrated by Felicia Bond

Mouse has a very busy day ahead of him. He has seven pumpkins to decorate. The newspapers are spread, the paints and brushes are out; it's time to create!

He decides to paint a happy face on the first pumpkin, and that makes him happy. Then he paints a sad face on the second pumpkin, and that makes him sad. But not for long.

The next pumpkin is going to have a silly face. And Mouse has a silly face to match it. The pumpkin after that has a surprised face. And Mouse is surprised by how surprising it looks.

Eek! What is that? A scary pumpkin! Who did that one? Mouse certainly didn't.

The pumpkin-painting party just got bigger in this darling read-along board book.
