Holiday Hill Enterprises (HHE), the company behind beloved seasonal icon and bullying prevention champion Spookley the Square Pumpkin (, announced the release of its newest book, Spookley the Square Pumpkin, the First Day of School. Currently available on Barnes and Noble’s website, it launched in stores as a Barnes and Noble exclusive (MSRP: $9.95).

Spookley the Square Pumpkin, the First Day of School is written by Spookley author and creator
Joe Troiano and follows Spookley through his first day at Holiday Hill Farm School. Spookley is
nervous and unsure of what to expect, but his worries disappear as he realizes how much fun it
is to discover new things and learn with his friends.

The book hit shelves exclusively at Barnes and Noble, the retailer that first introduced Spookley
to the world in 2001 with Troiano’s book, The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin.
“Spookley is a perennial favorite at Barnes and Noble,” says Scott Berkowitz, who oversees
Children's Books at Barnes and Noble. “Teachers are always looking for great new back-to-school
books and we think Spookley’s adventure will resonate with educators, parents, and children
adjusting to the classroom environment.”

HHE is supporting the launch of the new book with a classroom contest where teachers can
enter to win prizes including a virtual classroom visit with author Joe Troiano, a set of signed
books, and giant Spookley plush toys.
