In “Three Ghosts in a Black Pumpkin” we experience an entertaining adventure through the world of Creepy Hollow, a place that lies in-between and underneath, an ethereal land where magic holds sway and the denizens enjoy a spooky sort of safety and security under the aegis of a trinity of powerful Wishmothers.

Alas, an evil hobgoblin – Hobart T. Goblin – has imprisoned the Wishmothers within an enchanted pumpkin, and with his chief henchman (or in this case, chief Tasmanian Devil, Ebenezer Rex) s

I had such fun reading this, it’s a while since I’ve read a book written for children, and I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of sophistication there is, while still maintaining a tale suitable for the younger reader. The characters leapt off the page, acted naturally and, this is important for me as a reader, I felt for them, cared for them. There were distinct differences between the different stars in the book, both the real children and the mythical ones, well described and the writing ...more

It's no wonder "Three Ghosts in a Black Pumpkin" received a Golden Book Award and so many rave reviews this early in its career. It's modern fairy tale, built by two with a great ear for the way kids speak today. It's got all the "goo" and spooky characters you expect in modern kind's fantasy. And although it has all this, it is not as scary or traumatizing as "Bambi," a book and movie that traumatized me as a child. Golden Book Award Winner. Spooky, as I said, and funny, Pumpkin delivers heroic ...more

There is magic in this story! Three Ghosts in a Black Pumpkin is a book that will satisfy the hungry reader. It will not be disappointing. In our era, children are involved in the use of modern tools: cell phones, texting, taking pictures and posting them on face book. Many kids live an unfulfilled life. The children in this story, Nikki and Jack, are no different, but, there is an exception. They get caught up in a realm where they won't get bored. Not a dull moment! They meet mythical characte ...more

5 Howling Halloween Stars! March 19, 2017

Three Ghost in a Black Pumpkin: A Creepy Hollow Adventure by Erika Szabo & Joe Bonadonna is a Halloween Howling Hit! I loved this action packed scary tale from beginning to end and it will certainly engage young readers at home or school. The protagonists are Nikki and Jack, two cousins visiting Grandma's house on the eve of Halloween. While the two children go walking in the woods, they find a keystone, black pumpkin, and Wishbone, a talking skeleton
