If animals trick-or-treated . . .what would they do on Halloween night?

Owlet and friends would knock-knock-knock
at nests, outside dens, and under a rock,
promising a trick if they didn’t get treats.
And Parrot would give out her yummy seed sweets.

Across the animal kingdom, every creature would celebrate Halloween in their own special way.

She lives in Los Angeles, California.

"All the Halloween check boxes are ticked for the littlest listeners: carving pumpkins, decorating, donning costumes, and trick-or-treating... Walker’s scenes start during the day and gradually fade to night, when the illustrations almost seem to glow, gentle stars in the sky shining down, and the shared book at the close is the ideal end to a busy day." —Kirkus Reviews

"This endearing read-aloud will make young children giggle and will warm their hearts. Throughout the story, Paul invites children to imagine what animals would do if they celebrated Halloween like humans…A wonderful choice for an autumn story hour at the library or at home that will have young children laughing, learning, and saying, 'Again!'" —School Library Journal

"On Halloween, Owlet finds that every animal celebrates the scariest time of the year differently. From Hatchling and Papa Crocodile’s segmented croc-o’-lantern with the 'sneee-eeery smile' to Raccoon’s 'garbage-fudge squares,' each animal’s traditions feel unique to its species. Refreshingly, Halloween regulars (such as bats) mingle with animals not often featured (such as an armadillo)." —Horn Book
