Illustrated Friday: The Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Halloween is almost here, and that means it's time for a good ghost story! This story is about a ghost after my own heart- he's a cantankerous old man whose haunting is based solely on needing a perfect pumpkin pie. It's up to a young boy and his grandmother to create the perfect pie and hopefully put the ghost to rest. Denys Cazet's illustrations are always funky and fun, and even though the ghost is created when the old man drops dead mid-pie, there's nothing really scary here that kids can't handle. Happy Friday!
