Synopsis: When Homer puts his jack-o-lantern over his head like a helmet on the eve of Halloween, he gains access to a secret nocturnal meeting of the trees as they celebrate the arrival of the full moon.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 5 ``By fall, everything in the garden had changed,'' begins this tale of harvest moon magic. Homer's plans for the pumpkin he cuts from the frost bitten vine do not match his mother's. Instead of carving a jack-o'-lantern as she wishes, he designs a face to match what he imagines the moon's face would look like. That night he waits for moon rise, dons the pumpkin like a helmet, and sees the trees and plants begin to walk and talk. An evening of celebration begins, under the watchful moon, and Homer is both elated and scared. Finally, at dawn he breathes a sign of relief and walks home to familiar surroundings. Warm autumn colors with touches of black set the daylight mood of the story. Blue and silver objectify the magic of nighttime. Freed from the earth, plants and trees dance on the pages like Oriental calligraphy. This tale has a ``skinny book'' rather than a picture book format. The tensions between mother and son, comfortable and scary, magic and madness are deftly and subtly drawn. The psychological and seasonal meaning of All Hallows is often blunted or blatant in works for young readers, but not often presented as resonantly as in this fine, unusual book. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, Va.
