and just a bad story all around The illustrations weren t really bad but they weren t good either so I didn t enjoy looking at the pictures This book just didn t have anything to offer for me and I didn t enjoy it at allIt started with the names of the towns Turkeytown Spooky River Pumpkinville Then there was Hollis J Goodbody and wife Betty Mr Featherbed They re ridiculous But the town and its customs were even ridiculous and completely bizarre I had trouble understanding the economy of the town and noticed on pg 2 that this was a case of over thinking things It felt very adult in its structure and there shouldn t be this much politics and things in a children s picture book There was the Turkeytown Council and the Chamber of Commerce I m 99% certain a child who is reading a picture book doesn t know or case about a council or chamber of commerce It had no place in here It was at this point that I had my first example of how ill suited this is for children But the way the town was run was too much It was a lot of information coming my way They make their livings by raising turkeys Somehow the families living on the grassy knoll got richer than everyone else Don t know how Don t know what the grassy knoll had to do with anything but there it is They built silos to put all their corn in and made themselves the Council and Chamber of Commerce They bought all the fields and the only person who cared was Hollis J Goodbody He knew people would have to go to them for feed for their turkeysHollis left town during the summer when everything was dry and dead and the corn wasn t growing well The Councilmen charged half of everything you owned for turkey feedwhich was so stupid I just had to shake my head Really Exactly half of their assets for turkey feed How ridiculous and over the top That means they could only buy two bags of feed before losing everything they own It got worse from there Mr Featherbed hired 3 people to carry him around town because he was so heavy from the gold and silver in his pockets I don t even know what to say Why carry all of your money around in your pockets and not put it in a safe place The author went to great lengths to get across how villainous this man was He s the oldest and meanest he looks 150 year old with a pushed in face never smiles and his wrinkles are so deep corn could grow in them That was an opportunity to show a really exaggerated and humorous image of this character to really engage kids and get them to laugh Instead Mr Featherbed was represented by a tiny illustration above the paragraph You couldn t make out any of these details all you could see was that he s big and 3 men were carrying him What a waste I didn t get the reasoning behind that He wanted the Goodbodys out of town but Idk why because it s not like Hollis had said anything to Mr Featherbed about knowing his true motives to own the town or caused any kind of scene to warn others or make a stand against him Hollis literally did nothing and then left townso yeahIt got a little interesting as the stranger came into the story He asked everyone for shelter and food but he s nameless scary looking fiery eyes and a wide mouth from ear to ear He s accompanied by a cat with green eyes The only ones to help him were the Goodbodys He offered them gold for their kindness but they declined He gave them pumpkin seeds saying they re of worth Before leaving town they had to plant a few seeds and then leave town and plant the rest in a field Even though he d said they left town I guess he went back in tie to before they leftIdk it was confusingThese seeds turned into pumpkins bigger than houses and that image was so outlandish I couldn t even take it There was a clothesline running from the pumpkin down to a pole in the ground Okayyweird They used the pumpkins to feed people who had no food They fed their turkeys the pumpkin seeds The Council got mad put on costumes to disguise themselves and went out and smashed the pumpkins and stole the seeds Then they chanted around the fire about bogeymen and monsters Like what Was that supposed to mean something Why would they chant and about those things What was going onThe Goodbodys left Turkeytown thought they already had and founded their own town Pumpkinville All these huge pumpkins were in a field and people built houses around them in a circle Stupid And why in a circle Why all these unnecessary overthought details A picture showed a pumpkin that had a uarter of it cut out to make a stage for the band How did they stand up on a pumpkin Pumpkins are soft insideI didn t understand any of these decisionsThe Council was mad that people were leaving Turkeytown and going to Pumpkinville and planned something for Oct 31 when the harvest was over It seemed so random that the harvest was over on Oct 31which we know is HalloweenNow I m not saying you have to believe the events I m about to unfold but you can find the truth in every young child s heart on Halloween night That jumped out at me as so odd Considering this had nothing to do with Halloween and was such a random tale that s a weird statement to make Kids would have absolutely none of this story in their hearts The Councilmen crept over the slope of a hogbacked ridge What does that mean Is that a kid friendly expression to use Not everyone knows that phrase and I found the whole description of them avoiding the wide and open road between the 2 towns and taking the woods to be unnecessaryThey went to Goodbody s pumpkin patch with gunny sacks and that s another phrase that not many readers would know Mr Featherbed and the others were going to smash them but the stranger s cat scared them and then the stranger had the pumpkin grow a mouth and teeth and it s belly sprouted fire The vines wrapped the men up Hollis was woken and told the man to let them go home So I guess he thought the stranger s methods were worse than the bad men deserved In order to call off the evil jack o lantern the stranger threw crushed pumpkin seeds out Why crushed Why throw seeds at all What did that really do Everything was so weird and stupid The man and his cat disappeared and not a single word was spoken I couldn t fathom how this mysterious being could exit the story so uickly and anticlimactically Hollis went home and carved a face into a pumpkin to keep the evil spirits away That was such a random thing to do How did he know to do that That came out of nowhere The author tried to make the jump from this odd weird tale to modern day Halloween and it didn t work in any way shape or form This does not even come close to explaining how jack o lanterns got started and is such a convoluted conglomeration of a lot of random made up parts strung together that never made a cohesive whole I fail to see how seeing a huge pumpkin face about to eat some greedy crooks being controlled by a mysterious stranger would prompt someone to go home and make said face into their own pumpkinThe Councilmen promised not to tell how scared they were Of course that s how legends begin What Legends begin by people promising not to talk about things Could you at least say they couldn t keep the promise or make it clear that they ended up talking about it And why would they share that story where they had been so greedy and so bad that they were punished by a giant pumpkinThis tale wrapped up by stating that at the end of October everyone started carving jack o lanterns and inviting kids over for candy Howwhy How did they make the leap from having pumpkins to carving faces and then having candy for children Why did they give out candy what purpose did it serve He didn t explain it at all In the last few sentences he tried to tie it to Halloween by saying it spread to other towns and we have glowing pumpkins too This is where Halloween started and he heard it from his great grandpa I just don t get this story This is not how Halloween got started I don t even know what else to say It was bad really bad A waste of time a bizarre tale that has no place anywhere near Halloween There is too much text and too many adult issues and concepts for children I don t see this holding a child s attention at all This does not work as a story It has so many bad ideas I can t believe I just read a story about turkeys bolstering a town s economy corn as feed bad townsmen giant pumpkins and how and why in the world were the pumpkins so humongous What purpose did they serve and how did they grow to be regular size They were all gigantic bigger than houses but then at the end the people had small ones in their windows Okay a stranger who was never identified Who the heck was he and a desperate clumsy attempt to tie all of this nonsense to a modern day holiday that utterly failed On the positive There were some endearing phrasing just a hoot and a holler to the right and hereabouts and these here parts On a side note I did think it was cool how people raised turkeys My dad raises turkeys has for several years now and they are a uniue pet to have He heard from someone that they eat pumpkin seeds and we ve been wanting to try them out on the turkeys So that was something I found endearing that turkeys were being fed pumpkin seeds But this is something that related to me not that it was good It s not like the story was about turkeys because it wasn t Now that I think of it I m not sure how they made money raising turkeys If everyone in town was raising turkeys how did they make money off of them It s not like they could sell them to others because everyone else already had them My dad makes money by selling them but you have to find people to sell them to Here everybody has turkeys It wasn t explained how they actually make money off turkeys And how did the Councilmen by all the fields and how did no one in town own a field with which to grow corn I guess that s my final uestion about this book because I m not going to spend any time on this It s confusing full of plot holes unanswered uestions makes no sense and I wish I d never found it

I bought this book 25 years ago at an odd little bookstore in Fall River Massachusetts Great memories The book was cheap and caught my eye because of the creepy looking character on the cover Little did I know that it would become a family favorite It s got great pictures some which are uite humorous and an interesting story about dishonesty and the power of decent little guys triumphing over corrupt big guys The creepy looking character on the book cover is not what I d expected him to be at all and that s a fun part of the story This is a good one for elementary school kids but my kids enjoyed it even when they got into middle school and high school It s just one of those family traditions I suppose
