Five Little Pumpkins

by Iris Van Rynbach

"This sprightly version of the Halloween ditty is a treat. Rynbach's boldfaced, simple text chronicles the Halloween night escapades of five brave jack-o'-lanterns. Preschoolers will enjoy the bouncy rhythm and friendly characters, and Rynbach's watercolors give a soft autumnal wash to the proceedings." --Publishers Weekly "On Halloween night, five little jack-o'-lanterns come alive and join the trick-or-treaters. This delightfully illustrated version of the well-known rhyming finger play is complemented by watercolor pictures that evoke the autumn season, as well as the spookiness and sheer excitement of the evening's festivities." --Booklist

The Taxing Case of the Cows

by Iris Van Rynbach

Almost 100 years after the American Revolution, Abby and Julia Smith were fighting against taxation without representation. Women hadn't been given the vote, and the Smith sisters refused to pay an unfair property tax that they had no voice in establishing. When the authorities confiscated their cows, the Smiths bought them back at auction, thus paying what they owed without paying their taxes. The cows were seized at tax time for a number of years, and the Smiths's stand attracted the attention of women's suffrage supporters across the country. Lively, carefully researched illustrations bring this historical episode vividly to life. Authors' note, bibliography.
