Pumpkin People

  Author:   Sandra Lightburn  
  Artist :   Ron Lightburn    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Every autumn, strange figures start appearing around Kentville, Nova Scotia. Sauntering down the sidewalk, sitting in a tree, cavorting on a lawn—who are these peculiar people?

They’re the Pumpkin People! Made of cornstalks, straw, and, of course, pumpkins, these folkloric figures arrive every year to celebrate the harvest in a most creative way.

The immensely popular Pumpkin People tells the magical secrets of Kentville’s famous residents. Sandra Lightburn’s verse reveals the nighttime revelry of the half-funny, half-spooky figures; Ron Lightburn’s colourful illustations bring their wild Ceilidhs to life. And a special section in the back teaches pumpkin fans young and old how to build their own pumpkin person!
