Book Review: PumpkinHeads

Better than candy. Well, maybe not peanut butter cups. This short and sweet graphic novel takes place at a Pumpkin Patch, where Josie and Deja work each Halloween season. If you are trying to grab on to the last bit of Halloween magic, this is precisely the right book.


Next year they’ll both be at different colleges, but on this last night, they spend their time doing all the things they always meant to do together at the Farm.


It’s such cute and wholesome while at the same time effortlessly representing diversity, bisexuality, male/female friendship, consent, etc. as it should be.


The story is nothing that you can’t guess, and that’s part of its charm. It’s two teens at a Midwestern pumpkin farm doing the things teens do. It’s both touching and comical.

The art is fantastic, and you should read it with some spice cake and a Pumpkin Spiced Latte.
