Staake, Bob. This is NOT a Pumpkin. Little Simon, 2007.
What’s round like a pumpkin, orange like a pumpkin, but NOT a pumpkin? A jack o’ lantern, of course! I had the opportunity to read this board book to a group of kids of varying ages, and they all liked it. However, I think babies and toddlers would enjoy it most because of its simplicity. Each of the illustrations appears to depict a pumpkin, yet the bold text on the opposite page insists that it is NOT a pumpkin. With each declaration, the kids seemed to grow more convinced that it WAS a pumpkin, which made the “surprise” ending really fun. Recommended for babies and toddlers.
