Milton and Chloe Nasselrogt have the kind of last name nobody ever gets right (it's pronounced "Nasal Rod"). But when Milton and Chloe lose their parents in the department store, their name becomes much more than an annoyance -- it becomes out-and-out dangerous. Without any parents to claim them, the brother and sister are turned over to Y.K.K. Porifera, a wicked headmaster determined to lock them away forever in his orphan-powered zipper factory.

On the run from Porifera, scheming Milton and clever Chloe take refuge in an abandoned house, whose last owner inexplicably vanished the Halloween before. As the pumpkin patch in their new yard grows by leaps and bounds, Milton and Chloe try to unravel the mystery of the Argyle house. With October 31st getting closer and closer, the Nasselrogts start to suspect that what's growing in the patch may not be pumpkins at all, but something more monstrous and sinister.

Readers of JT Petty's darkly humorous thriller will find out why they should respect their candy and fear their vegetables.
