Get into the Pumpkin Show spirit with a good book

Versailles is gearing up for the 2022 Versailles Lions Club Pumpkin Show on the square, so we figure now is a great time to check out a book – or 2 – about pumpkins! There are so many fun books to choose from in our collection at Tyson Library.

I’ll leave a thorough list below for you to get an idea of just how much fun these orange fruits can be inside the pages of a book. And, for any Disney or Tim Burton fans out there we have NEW book in our teen section you NEED to check out:

Long Live the Pumpkin King by Shea Ernshaw

That’s right. It’s a sequel to Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas with Sally taking the leading role this time.

Another teen recommendation in our collection is Pumpkin Heads by Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks

This graphic novel follows a pair of high school seniors as they spend their last pumpkin season together after 3 years. Check it out today to see how they “go out with a bang!”

Other books about pumpkins in our collection at Tyson Library:

I also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the library will be closed Saturday, September 24 so our staff can participate in the Pumpkin Show Parade. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces along the parade route!
