scary books. This post is from 2009, and I still don’t quite feel like it’s Halloween until we pull out these books and at least take a glimpse. It’s hard, really, to sip a mug of pumpkin chai latte without thinking of Too Many Pumpkins. And wondering, what would it be like to not like pumpkins? Of when the boys fight, it’s hard not to think of the sibling-like qualities of cooperation in Pumpkin Soup.
