Paul's artwork is as dynamic and arresting as ever. His comic touch is perfectly judged, stretching the simple story within reach of a wide age group. (Guardian)

included at the back) and we smiled at the references to Cinderella.
This a great halloween story for the little ones without any fear of them being scared. It's also quite good to tie in to a "buy local, grow your own" theme - though Winnie does have a magic pumpkin helicopter at the end which is brilliant pictorially and I''m sure would be powered in a carbon-friendly way.
Anyway was going to keep it till Halloween as wee surprise but after reading it on the train on the way home from work i could not resist giving it to my 3 year old! As with all her other Winnie books she loved loved loved it!
Korky Paul's illustrations are in my opinion second to none. If you look closely at the pictures you will see some of the characters he has brought to life for other authors such as Professor Puffendorf and Sanjay the Baker. My little one actually noticed this before me one night whilst reading Winnie in Winter!
A joy to read aloud time and time again - can't wait till my wee cherub can read it to me!
Would highly recommend Winnie's Amazing Pumpkin as i would all of the titles in the series!
All of the stories are great and children (and adults) love finding all the quirky little bits and pieces in Korky Paul's fascinating illustration.
A great story (what to do with a giant pumpkin?) and look out for characters from lots of KP's other books in the crowds.
A keen vegetable eater and grower, Winnie is impatient for her garden to bloom and uses a spell to help. Cue humongous vegetables.. And garden creatures! We love the fantastic illustrations, shouting 'abracadabra', and the use Winnie puts her giant pumpkin to.
Great story, we hope to see more from Wilbur and his mistress very soon.
Wilber keeps jumping on Winnies shoulder when Winnie gets on her broomstick. They keep going to the farmers market getting lots and lots of vegetables and pumpkins it is hard for Winnie to get home with Wilber on her shoulder and lots of vegetables and pumpkins when Winnie got home she had an idea, I will grow my own garden! Wilber helped Winnie water the the vegetables. Wilber helped but the plants grew very slowly and when they did grow the caterpillars and snails and rabbits ate them.
