(From the publisher):
One morning, a few days before Halloween, Mrs. McMurphy wakes up to find a large pumpkin by her front door.
"My mouth is here. I speak to you. When my teeth are here, I'll eat you!" it says with a mischievious grin.
Unafraid, Mrs. McMurphy politey places the threatening squash outside. But day after day the pumpkin returns to make good on its promise!
Rick Walton's wickedly funny story about one woman's unique solution to an uninvited guest and Delana Bettoli's delicious illustrations combine for a holiday treat as bright as the smile on a jock-o'-lantern's face.
