Compost won't mean the same thing after readers have seen the amazing transformation of Jack from grinning pumpkin to mold-mottled wreckage to hopeful green shoot. The story of decomposition is vividly told so that science comes to life (and death). Part story, part science, and a whole lot of fun. Features a teacher guide in the back of the book, and additional material (including instructions on how to put on a Rotten Pumpkin play in your school) are on the Creston and Author websites.

From the Inside Flap:

This is a new kind of holiday book — a Halloween book for November instead of October. It's a Halloween story with the theme of decomposition, a science book about the recycling of life, a photography book with pictures so detailed, fascinating and . . . well . . . gross, that it will captivate and engage even the most book-phobic of children. Written in the first person from the voices of all the characters involved (the pumpkin and its many visitors including mice, birds, insects, fungi, worms, slime molds, etc.), the narrative documents the fate of a familiar fruit as it rots into nothingness. . . and everything.
