It's Halloween in Emily Jenkins's Dangerous Pumpkins, the second title in the chapter-book series about a Brooklyn fourth grader and his invisible furry pal. Hank Wolowitz hates Halloween. Every year his older sister, Nadia, scares him half to death. But Hank's invisible bandapat, Inkling, loves Halloween. Pumpkins are his favorite food. Hank has serious trouble stopping Inkling from devouring every jack-o'-lantern in their neighborhood, including the ones his sister carves. And that's not his only problem: Will he ever figure out a cool costume? Will he finally get to pick the holiday flavor in his family's ice-cream shop? Will Hank ever get revenge on Nadia? Kids will love Hank and Inkling's latest adventure, illustrated by acclaimed artist Harry Bliss.
