Link Du Jour: 5 Children’s Lit Jack o’ Lanterns
Sometimes you have to ask “Why not?”
As in, “Why not stroll in at the last second with five examples of children’s lit jack o’ lanterns?”
Since I can’t give a good reason to the contrary, let’s take a look at some pumpkins:
1. Harry Potter
Bonus points here for getting the lightning bolt scar to show up well.
This makes my spider jack o’ lantern look pretty bad.
3. Where the Wild Things Are
Dang. I repeat – dang. This one uses the jack o’ lantern equivalent of woodcut illustration with impressive results.
4. Fone Bone
The most unexpected on the list? I’d say so.
Aww, yeah. Smoldering inside and out.
