Wow, check out the amazing kidlit-focused pumpkin carved by children's book author/illustrator David LaRochelle:
"Chronicle Books held a promotion in conjuncture with my new book "It's a Tiger!" The winning bookstore won a custom designed pumpkin carved by me. Here is the pumpkin I carved today for Riverwalk Books in Chelan, Washington."
