Now on store shelves (although not actually in stock at Amazon) is the latest book to come under the the title of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. This time, it’s a board book, aimed at kids… and with four single-picture spreads and one two-picture spread, it’s not really meant to convey the story in any meaningful way. Instead, it exists to give you places to stick the 30 reusable stickers that come with it. And in case there’s any doubt of where the stickers go, there are dotted lines around where the belong.
At the moment, Amazon is saying they’ll ship this in “4 to 6 weeks”, which makes it dubiously useful as a Halloween thing. However, that phrase is really just Amazon-speak for “we’re really not quite sure what’s going on in getting this through our distributors.”
This is the first in a batch of such books from Running Press Kids, including not only the previously-discussed (and already-available-through-Amazon) A Charlie Brown Christmas and (still-upcoming) Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, but also It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown and something called The Grand Piano Book
