Every Autumn strange figures start appearing around the town of Kentville, Nova Scotia, sauntering down the sidewalk, sitting in a tree, cavorting on a lawn-who are these peculiar people? Why, they're the Pumpkin People! Constructed from cornstalks, straw, and, of course, pumpkins, these folkloric figures are put together every year to celebrate the harvest in the Annapolis Valley in a most creative way.
Pumpkin People tells the tale of Kentville's famous pumpkin people. Sandra Lightburn's simple verse reveals the secret world of the half-funny, half-spooky figures; Ron Lightburn's stunning illustrations bring that secret world to life. And a special section in the back teaches pumpkin fans young and old how to build their own pumpkin person!
