Juvenile Nonfiction: Science & Nature
By David M. Schwartz
Photographs by Dwight Kuhn
In brilliant images and an easy-to-understand text, Schwartz and Kuhn tell the story of what happens to a Jack O'Lantern after Halloween. Compost won't mean the same thing after you've seen the amazing transformation of Jack from grinning pumpkin to mold-mottled wreckage to hopeful green shoot. Part story, part science, and a whole lot of fun.
"Leave it to Schwartz and Kuhn (What in the Wild: Mysteries of Nature Concealed and Revealed, 2010) to combine their considerable talents again to create a page-turning title on decomposition...an ecology lesson, an inspiration for readers' theater-or a compelling read all on its own."
