From an Ecademy Press book to laughing Pumpkin

Carving out a career path is tougher than a pumpkin but can be as full of surprises. Halloween's an ideal time to say thank you to Ecademy and Mindy Gibbins-Klein using this specific laughing pumpkin. As a direct contact following the Ecademy Press publication of a book by Andrew Segal, I was approached to create a series of educational cartoon characters, including this laughing pumpkin. ( The laughing Halloween pumpkin appears in a new book for children and is reproduced here by kind permission of Little People Books.) Without Mindy's initial help and support, pumpkins may have remained forever spooky. (Another tale with a happy ending thanks to Ecademy) .... and so the story grows.
