Description

As the townsfolk sleep, something creeps into the neighborhood. Hidden in the shadows, its presence is as old as time itself, its intent not born of goodness. Nick, a teenager who fancies himself a detective, wakes to find his carved masterpiece missing. Now a mystery is afoot and Nick has his first assignment, to find out who or what is snatching up the townÂs pumpkins and why. Unfortunately, as with all great detectives, obstacles stand in NickÂs wayÂthe neighborhood bully and his cronies and the strange old lady and her dog who share the run-down house at the end of NickÂs block. As Nick investigates, an urban legend unravels  . . . the legend of the Pumpkin Thief. Nick fears the legend as he embarks on the most dangerous adventure of his young life. Collecting clues, getting ever closer to the true nature of evil, he learns that curiosity comes with a high price.show more

Review quote

"Charles Day's The Legend of the Pumpkin Thief should be every Halloween-crazy kid's favorite book--and a lot of us adults will love this wonderful tale as well. Part mystery, part fantasy, and part perfect Halloween scary story, it all adds up to 100% sheer delight. Bravo to intrepid young detective Nick, that black-suited Pumpkin Thief, and Charles Day for putting them together in this sweet-'n'-spooky novella."  —Lisa Morton, author, Trick or Treatshow more
