School Library Journal - 06/23/2023 K-Gr 4—Just scary enough to please those looking for a mild fright, this story leads young readers on an annual Halloween romp of pumpkin-headed zombies. "Welcome to the Great Zombie Pumpkin Parade!" Burleigh brings out the silly side of the undead with rhymes: "Leaves swirl and tumble/ as day turns to night./ Zombies stumble/ Left and right," and alliteration: watch out for "Zipper-Toothed Zlumpkin," who is preceded by "Drizzle-Mouthed Dumpkin" and followed by "Slime-Faced Sumpkin." Minor's watercolor and gouache illustrations, which feature an emojilike range of zombie expressions, soften the spooky couplets. VERDICT A natural fit for Halloween-themed read alouds and activities.—Nora Clancy - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
