Synopsis

The Runaway Pumpkin Pie Man by Vicky Town

Its Halloween! Kids are getting ready for trick-or-treating, families are decorating their yards, and one wrinkly old witch decides she is going to make a pie. But the big pumpkin she plans to use is just too big to move into the house. So she casts a spell on the enormous gourd, magically transporting it into the house, where it then makes itself into a delicious pie. Little does she know how much magic she baked into the pumpkin pie, for when the old, roly-poly witch opens the oven, the pie sits up and yells, Im outta here! As he runs as fast as he can, he meets other monsters of the night who want to eat him: Dracula, ghosts, and werewolves. But the list does not end there; trick-or-treaters in costume, a policeman, and a dog all begin to chase the tasty, flaky, spiced deliciousness that is the Pumpkin Pie Man! Until ...look out! The Pumpkin Pie Man crashes into the side of a purple minivan, flies high into the air, and lands in the mouth of one lucky dog named Coco. Playful and silly, this Halloween version of The Gingerbread Man is sure to leave you smiling and hungry! The text inspires youngsters to read with animated language and sound effects, while the illustrations bring this dessert creation to life! Playful and fun, the images will have you chasing this runaway Pumpkin Pie Man through the books pages.
