"As in the previous book, O'Brien's rhymes and rhythms stick every landing... Gal's smudgy illustrations, a technology-spanning combination of charcoal on paper and digital collage, glory in the golds, crimsons, and russets of fall, adding contrasting blues and greens for extra pop. A buoyant welcome to the season."
"The simple, engaging text (“Pick a pumpkin,/orange and fat./Razzle dazzle!/Look at that!”) is paired with Gal’s layered charcoal on collage illustrations, which fill the pages with rich and appealing details."
