The Runaway Pumpkin

The Runaway Pumpkin

by Kevin Lewis Illustrated by S. D. Schindler

Kevin Lewis, author of the bestselling Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo, pairs up with award-winning illustrator S. D. Schindler to create the perfect picture book about a pumpkin on the run.

A bumpin' thumpin' rhyming picture book about the delicious fate of a gigantic pumpkin on the run.

When Buck, Billy, and their little sister Lil spy the biggest pumpkin they've ever seen, they can't resist. Buck and Billy try to roll the pumpkin down the hill to show everyone, but it's too big! Before they know it, it's bumping and thumping and rolling down the hillside out of control.

This read aloud Halloween treat is perfect for kids and families.
