Rotten Pumpkin: A Rotten Tale in 15 Voices

rotten-pumpkin
By David M. Schwartz (Author), Dwight Kuhn (Photographer)

Synopsis: Compost won’t mean the same thing after readers have seen the amazing transformation of Jack from grinning pumpkin to mold-mottled wreckage to hopeful green shoot. The story of decomposition is vividly told so that science comes to life (and death). Part story, part science, and a whole lot of fun. Features a teacher guide in the back of the book, and additional material (including instructions on how to put on a Rotten Pumpkin play in your school) are on the Creston and Author website.
