What a great idea! I'm bummed I didn't think of it first! Anyone who has ever carved a pumpkin has had to eventually deal with the rotting wreckage of said pumpkin. Here in Texas that is sooner than later and it's always a bit of a bummer. This book helps make the decomposition process interesting for kids so that the fun can continue even after the Halloween décor has been taken down! I know my kid can't wait for us to have our own rotting pumpkin!
