In the tradition of the best-selling Halloween Treats, comes a fantastic new guide to scaring up holiday fun. Great Pumpkins features pumpkin-carving ideas to light up every porch and window, from an evil witch on a broomstick sure to terrify the neighbors to cute little kittens to welcome 'frady cats of all stripes. Artist Peter Cole has created a delightfully clever array of pumpkin tableaux, including Pumpkinstein, a monstrous experiment in scary fun, and Cinderella's Magic Coach, a beautiful carriage flanked by two white gourd swans. Simple instructions give novice carvers the know-how, while experienced carvers will find practical inspiration for show-stopping artistry. Step-by-step instructions for selecting a pumpkin with the potential for greatness and a look at carving supplies complete this whimsical guide. Plus, there’s a selection of easy-to-use stencils created just for this book that guarantee success.
