This is a great book to help orient an older toddler to Halloween and the fun of dressing up and going door to door, with absolutely no mention of candy! Mother Pig and Pookie have a much better dress-up box than we have, but the experience of trying on every costume in the box looking for just the right one is familiar. I appreciate Pookie’s aside comments, delivered with even temper! And the surprise at the end is a winner.
