Every year, giant pumpkin contests take place at fairs across the country—the 2012 record-holder weighed over a ton! The latest craze is to carve the most enormous pumpkins into racing boats. But what’s next? Why not think really big? Award-winning artist Wendell Minor does just that as he imagines larger-than-life pumpkins decorating some of America’s favorite places—as immense as the Capitol dome, Mount Rushmore, the Brooklyn Bridge, even the Grand Canyon! This celebration of famous landmarks and landscapes plays with concepts of size and scale and is full of fun facts.
Wendell Minor the award winning author-illustrator of over sixty children’s books, two of which were New York Times best sellers. He is the current Artist Laureate of the Norman Rockwell Museum. Wendell lives with his wife and collaborator Florence, and their cat Cinder in rural Connecticut.
