Set entirely in a pumpkin patch over the course of one day, this sweet romance is the perfect autumnal graphic novel. Rainbow Rowell's dialogue conveys an easy friendship, despite Deja and Josiah being "seasonal friends" at the patch, and Faith Erin Hicks' cute, colorful art is a perfect fit for the story. "Pumpkinheads" is brimming with charm, sugary confections, and all things autumn. Dejah and Josiah are older teens, being in a transitional period of their lives and heading off to college, but this book is appropriate for younger teens, too. It also boasts positive bisexual and body image representation!

Adorable autumn graphic novel goodness. This sweet and funny story was like getting a hug from October and I loved every second of it!

4 Stars - I recommend if you enjoy Rainbow Rowell, fall, and cute graphic novels.

Deja and Josiah work at the same pumpkin patch every fall. They've been friends for years, but only in the fall when they work together. This graphic novel follows their last night together before they graduate and head off to colleges next year.

Ah friends, I love Rainbow Rowell. I haven't even read that many of her novels yet... but I just love her style. So I knew I would want to pick this one up, and that I would love it because it would be cute, and fun, and fall-ish. It delivered. 1) now I want to go to a pumpkin patch, real bad... 2) this is suuuper adorable. I loved the illustrations. I loved Deja and Josiah. I loved the shenanigans, and all the falls snacks. The attention to detail in the art is great, and I loved the funny little repeating quirks, like the goat that escapes. I wanted just a little bit more character development. I think maybe it felt just a *little* bit lacking because of the format, and because it is so short. But that's ok, its just that it's so good and I wanted MORE. ha If they decide to make more graphic novels, I will gobble them up. Fall pun not intended, but do with it what you will.

A fun autumn read about two friends who work at a local pumpkin patch. Having grown up going to pumpkin patches, I immediately fell in love. The art is super cute & eye-catching and the pumpkin patch map included on the end pages is a great addition.
