Extreme Pumpkins II: Take Back Halloween and Freak Out a Few More Neighbours by Tom Nardone (71)

This is a book that will fulfill my posting for the October Canadian Book Review Challenge. It is a very spooky book. I won’t be trying any of Tom Nardone’s creations. However, I’m sure a lot of readers will.

After grossing out the nation with his previous book, Extreme Pumpkins, Tom’s outrageous collection of twisted Halloween creations, renegade pumpkin carver is back with a vengeance.

In this truly frightening sequel, he presents 20 new designs guaranteed to thrill trick-or-treaters and horrify respectable neighbours everywhere. The book contains the following page spreads:

  • Problem child pumpkin
  • Subliminal message pumpkin-this one is where mind control meets Halloween hijinks
  • Suburban Nightmare Pumpkin-this one is sure to keep noisy neighbours away.
  • Cro-Magnon Pumpkin–this is not just another pretty face to say the least
  • Booger-Eating Pumpkin is designed to delight the adolescent boy in each of us
  • Plus pranks, practical jokes, and over the top spectacles that will make you a neighbourhood legend, if you dare.

I found this book interesting and scary. I even jumped a few times when I turned the page, and dreamt of one creation a few nights after reading the book.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves Halloween and wants to enjoy the holiday in style. This is real style, if you ask me.
