Mrs. McMurphy's Pumpkin by Rick Walton, Delana Bettoli (Illustrator)

One morning, a few days before Halloween, Mrs. McMurphy wakes up to find a large pumpkin by her front door. "My mouth is here. I speak to you. When my teeth are here, I'll eat you!" it says with a mischievous grin. Unafraid, Mrs. McMurphy politely places the threatening squash outside. The pumpkin mysteriously reappears everyday after, first with a "crooked nose," then "two pointy ears," then "two mean eyes." Each time, it repeats the warning and the woman responds by putting it farther and farther away. Finally, on Halloween, the pumpkin returns to her house, complete with "large, sharp teeth," and says that it's ready to eat her. Mrs. McMurphy calmly replies, "We'll have to see about that," and ends up making a pie. She serves pumpkin pie to her trick-or-treaters.
