Literary Pumpkins

What do you get when you cross a pumpkin with your favorite book character? A Literary Pumpkin, of course! I’d never come across this fantastic idea until today when a friend sent me a link. And now I keep picturing all of our favorite characters in pumpkin form.

I help run our elementary school’s Scholastic book fairs, and I’m wondering if we could pull off a Literary Pumpkins contest at the October book fair. It would take some serious organizing (and a lot of pumpkins), but it would be so fun to see what the kids come up with!

Do you recognize these famous characters? (Answers are at the bottom!)

What literary character would you turn into a pumpkin?

    That doesn’t surprise me at all, Marilyn! Would you decorate yours as IT from “A Wrinkle in Time”? 🙂

    Oh this is a great idea. 🙂 Pinning it right now to remember for next fall’s book fair.
