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!About the Author: Ron Lightburn's Waiting for the Whales won the Governor Generals Award.
