Trick or Treat by Leo Landry - OPTIONAL

Landry, Leo  Trick or Treat, PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, 2012. $12.99. Content: G. 

Oliver the ghost is having his special Halloween party on his favorite day of the year.  On his way home after delivering invitations, he drops one.  It is picked up by some trick or treaters that decide to show up for Oliver’s party unannounced.  When they arrive they are asked to join in on all the Halloween fun and Oliver ends up making some new friends.  This was a very basic, sweet story with a focus on making new friends.  There were some creative Halloween aspects included like when Oliver decorated for his party by adding dust.  It was fun for a quick Halloween read, but wasn’t something that knocked me off my feet.
