In Five Little Pumpkins, illus. by Dan Yaccarino, five carved pumpkins watch ghosts and witches fly by on Halloween night. Bold colors, expressive pumpkins and dramatic perspectives complement the spirited rhyming text. R.W. Alley's lively, humorous illustrations for There Once Was a Witch depict a cheerful Halloween night with costumed trick-or-treaters and a fun-loving, broomstick-surfing witch. The music and lyrics for this traditional song appear on the last spread.
