Squashed Book Tour & Giveaway

I’m thrilled to be taking part in the Squashed Book Tour, hosted by The Children’s Book Review. Check out my review below and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!


By Meaghan Tosi

Based on a Story by Thomas Tosi

Graphic Novel

80 Pages

Ages 6-12

Dooney Press | ISBN-13: 9781954782051

Aah! Dude! It moved!

Can the mysterious shuddering pumpkin the three kids found in the forest be alive? They’re going to find out when they lift it from its resting place and carry it home. But what happens if someone or something comes looking for it?

This evocative graphic novel is spooky yet ultimately gentle and charming. It presents a tale of unfounded fear of those who are different and the similarities we all share. Told in richly stylized full-color artwork from illustrator Meaghan Tosi whose previous work Kirkus Reviews praised as delightful.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The perfect Halloween season treat! As a huge fan of graphic novels, I was so excited to see this one and be able to participate in this amazing book tour. I think children and adults of all ages will fall in love with this delightful story! I thought the friendships were endearing and totally relatable to the target audience. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous. I think it’s amazing that Meaghan turned her dad’s home movie into this fantastic piece of art. I’ll definitely recommend this one to everyone!!
