From the Author:

Pick Me! Pick Me! The Story of the Magic Pumpkin is an enchanting tale that captures the imagination of children. It transforms Halloween into a magical time as children bring a pumpkin to life to share the magic of its single most important day. All who read this story are forever drawn into a wonderful new family tradition.

The story began as a poem, but it's also a song. It was inspired by watching children pick pumpkins at Mack's Apples, the pick-your-own farm that I live near. It always put a smile on my face to hear their imaginations run wild as they combed through the fields, looking for the perfect pumpkin.

Some children would choose one with a perfect shape, and for others the perfect pumpkin was one that was a bit odd looking - as if they felt it needed them. But all of them just couldn't wait to get home and bring their pumpkin to life by carving a happy face into it.

Here's a little interesting background info... this is the second version of the story! The original version of the story was called The Magic Pumpkin and it was very different, but it was forever lost. It was about how all the pumpkins in the patch came to life at night and the fun rituals they created to celebrate Halloween. I spent months looking for the pages I had scribbled on... searching high and low, in every drawer, in every coat pocket, under couches, in cars, under my bed, and everywhere else I could think of, and it was nowhere to be found. Finally, my wife, Sue, suggested that maybe what I was writing just wasn't meant to be and that I should start over. So I did, and this is the result. 

In addition to being a story book, Pick Me! Pick Me! The Story of the Magic Pumpkin is also one of seven original Halloween songs that we sing. If you're ever in our neighborhood for Halloween you can stop by and hear us perform them all.

Every Halloween we decorate a small patch of wooded area in front of our house, where for the last ten years we've performed for the trick-or-treaters who come to visit. I think we get as much out of the experience - if not more - than the children do! I hope you enjoy hearing the story as much as I enjoy telling it.
