Synopsis: Pumpkinhead lives in Pumpkintown, where everyone has a pumpkin for a head. But unlike the rest of his neighbors, Pumpkinhead wonders about the outside world. Fearlessly, he sets off on a journey into the unknown. Foolishly, he takes off his heavy head when he stops for a rest. Mischievous squirrels meddle, and before too long, Pumpkinhead makes a seriously silly mistake.
From School Library Journal: Gr 1-3-"Does everyone in the world have a pumpkin head?" In this goofy story, young Pumpkinhead goes to the library to find the answer to his question. The librarian tells him, "Nobody in Pumpkintown has ever been anywhere else." So this orange-faced hero heads off on a journey beyond his town limits. When he removes his head to go to sleep, he sets it down facing the direction he is heading. Unbeknownst to him, during his nap, two mischievous squirrels move the gourd. When he awakens, the boy ends up heading back toward home. Soon he arrives at a village where all the buildings "look the same" as his town. When he meets the people there they tell him that one of their citizens has gone on a quest similar to his and Pumpkinhead chalks it up to coincidence. Believing he is returning home, he sets off again and the squirrels repeat their trick, bringing the silliness full circle. Haskamp's acrylic paintings suit this story perfectly. The artist's palette is full of oranges, yellows, reds, and browns with a few greens thrown in for good measure. Marvelous, colorful endpapers show the range of variation in the pumpkinhead look. This picture book can be enjoyed as part of a story program about autumn or about fools. Young readers will enjoy being in on the joke as the young hero proves that he is, well, a pumpkinhead.
