Meet Christopher Pumpkin - the adorable magical pumpkin who doesn't want to be spooky!

This sweet Halloween story from Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet is perfect for reading aloud with little ones.

One night, a witch casts a spell on a pumpkin - and Christopher Pumpkin comes to life! He's overjoyed to meet all his new pumpkin friends, but he isn't so keen on decorating the witch's spooky castle for the big Halloween party. He doesn't like cobwebs and spiders... he much prefers cupcakes and bunting!

This sweet and hilarious picture book from the creators of Supertato is perfect for reading aloud with little ones, and has a positive message about the importance of being yourself - even if you're a pumpkin.
