Publisher's Summary: Guess whooo's hiding behind the pumpkin in this interactive lift-the-flap book that's part hide-and-seek, part peek-a-boo, and all Halloween. Ten jack-o-lantern flaps lift to reveal a host of Halloween creatures, including a mischievous cat, bebopping skeletons, a friendly Frankenstein, and a group of children in costume. Are you ready to trick or treat too? Then lift one more flap for a sweet surprise.

Publisher's Summary: This lift-the-flap book is the perfect way to introduce toddlers to one of the most magical holidays of the year. Santa's coming, of course! And he's flying in on a sled led by reindeer. Careening over rooftops, he lands on one lucky little girl's roof. But not before this little girl gets a chance to prepare - she listens to carols, bakes cookies, trims the tree, readies Santa's treat, and even tries against her will to get some sleep. All of the yuletide action is hidden under darling Christmas present flaps, until the end, where a beautifully decorated Christmas tree is waiting to reveal Santa.

Author's Comments:

I have always loved gentle Halloween books. Whooo's That?, a lift-the-flap pumpkin book, is my first venture into writing a novelty book. Each page asks the question...
                 Whooo's That? 
Peeking out behind large orange pumpkins are some tantalizing clues. Each time, the reader looks beyond the pumpkin and makes a guess.

    Whooo's that...rattling be bop bones?
    Whooo's that...shrieking scary moans?
The concept for the book was created by my daughter, Linda Winters. The whimsical illustrations by Jeannie Winston bring the lyrical text to life.
Lifting the Flap of Who's Coming for Xmas





After a recent author visit, the school's reading teacher bought Who's Coming for Christmas to share with her toddler. Never too early to start the reading process and build excitement about books.
Whooo's Behind the Pumpkin?


Curious readers can't wait to guess and see whooo's that hiding behind the big pumpkin.
