I actually wanted to call the book "Punkins" but it turns out that the better idea was to name it after this website "Extreme Pumpkins". I do like a punk rock pumpkin and this is a pretty good one.
Paint the pumpkin flat black, stick some carrots and turnips through to make a mohawk and then add a hose clamp or two to simulate piercings. Voila. A Punkin!
