Did you know that an old fashioned name for a jack-o-lantern, is “pumpkin moonshine”?
Written in 1938, this endearing little book is sweet and gentle with old fashioned illustrations
reminiscent of Beatrix Potter's tales. It takes place in New England, with the wonderful, crisp feel
of the Autumn season flowing throughout the story. A fun nostalgic read for grown-ups and
children alike, it is a simple tale.
It takes you back to a rural Halloween that people celebrated a long time ago, to a little girl and
her adventure of getting and carving a pumpkin moonshine! Her runaway pumpkin causes
mayhem and delight one lovely autumn day!
