A lively, rhythmic Halloween read aloud that follows a group of zombie pumpkins as they celebrate the season.

It’s Halloween and the Zombie Pumpkin Parade is drawing near. Join Zipper-Toothed Zlumpkin, Drizzle-Mouthed Dumpkin, and the rest of their ghostly crew as the spooky-silly zombie pumpkins dance through the darkness, in celebration of the most bewitching night of the year!

With jaunty, rhyming verse and atmospheric watercolor paintings, this seasonal offering is just spooky enough to delight young children as well as just funny enough to send them into giggles.


  • Praise for The Great Zombie Pumpkin Parade:

    "Following a spread showing a sun-kissed pumpkin patch at dusk, this Halloween extravaganza from collaborators Burleigh and Minor presents a parade of comically ugly, jack-o’-lantern-headed zombies lumbering across its page…. Though language warns readers to 'beware, be wise!' the procession reads as more inviting accounting than genuine threat, especially as the parade winds down into a graveyard snooze."
    Publishers Weekly
  • "In propulsive rhyming verse and spooky watercolor and gouache illustrations ('mixed with digital'), readers are introduced to the participants in a parade of zombies with jack-o'-lanterns for heads…. Burleigh and Minor’s latest collaboration is perfect for young readers who enjoy a bit of ‘shiver and quiver’ in their picture books."
    Horn Book
  • "Just scary enough to please those looking for a mild fright…. Burleigh brings out the silly side of the undead with rhymes… Minor’s watercolor and gouache illustrations, which feature an emojilike range of zombie expressions, soften the spooky couplets…. A natural fit for Halloween-themed read alouds and activities."
