Today’s Halloween book is The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey, and it’s a good one. Here’s what it’s about:
Oscar is short, like all dachshunds and other dogs make fun of him. On Halloween he takes more ridicule than ever in his hot-dog costume, but one brave act makes him a hero. Color illustrations throughout. A “School Library Journal” Best of the Best of 1995.
Such a CUTE book! We all know that Dave Pilkey writes the Captain Underpants series, a favorite of my sons when they were young. This book has the same appeal. The best part is the main character, Oscar, is a wiener dog dressed for Halloween trick or treating in a hot dog costume. Poor Oscar is made fun of until he saves the day. Make sure you add this one to your Halloween reading list. I would even suggest buying a copy to read year after year.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
