about this item

Once there was a witch who longed for pumpkin pie. Unfortunately, the pumpkin she had grown from a seed became so big she simply couldn't get it off the vine. Although "she pulled and she tugged and she pulled...that pumpkin just sat."
Along came a ghost. "I am bigger than you and stronger, too," said he. "Let me try."
Well, the witch wanted that whole pumpkin for herself. But she needed help -- Halloween was just hours away...
With the rhythm and repetition that children love, Erica Silverman tells a rollicking story about a witch who, through her encounter with a ghost and other spooky creatures, discovers both the value of cooperating and the joy of sharing. S.D. Schindler brings this captivating crew to life in spirited paintings that are as warm as they are funny.
In honor of Halloween, a witch decides to bake a pumpkin pie, but when her pumpkin refuses to come loose from its vine, she enlists the aid of a ghost, a vampire, a mummy, and a bat to free the pumpkin.
