They’re pretty fantastic, aren’t they?

Now, are you ready for our 2021 pumpkin owlpalooza? Here are the rules:

  • Make a pumpkin (carve, paint, or otherwise decorate) themed to match one of our books (book does not need to be purchased or included in the photo, just mentioned).
  • Tell us why it’s a great fit for the book.
  • Tag us and use the hashtag #owloween + the book’s hashtag.
  • Share during the month of October on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook (make sure to tag us!)
  • For extra fun, tag your friends to participate—the more jack-o-lantern goodness, the better!
  • On October 31st, our panel of judges will choose three winners. They will receive:

1st place: $25 gift card for Amazon or your favorite bookstore.

2nd place: $15 gift card for Amazon or your favorite bookstore.

3rd place: $10 gift card for Amazon or your favorite bookstore.
