It’s Halloween and Franklin is excited to go to the costume party. Bear is always a ghost, but Franklin’s other friends are keeping their costumes a secret.

What will Franklin wear?

At the costume party, Franklin has fun apple-bobbing and playing pumpkin toss. He even braves the haunted house. Then he discovers bear is not the ghost at the costume party. Who could it be?

=========

Young readers will delight in Franklin’s Halloween adventure. Colorful pictures accompany the narrative; the story is both predictable and surprising. And there’s a lesson about being a good friend, all wrapped up in a clever tale that is sure to keep the Little Ones laughing.

Highly recommended. ( )

I used to love watching Franklin with my youngest kids, and reading the books to them, and they loved it, so when I had my granddaughter over, I thought of this book and hoped that she would like it as much as they did, and I wasn't disappointed. She loved it! She thought the characters were fun and the way Franklin got so excited for Halloween, trying on different costumes until he found just the right one, reminded her so much of herself. As for me, I love the fact that all the kids (animals) are different from each other, but they accept those differences and love each other all the more because of them. What a great message to send our kids! And the illustrations are always excellent.

Highly recommend: 5/5 stars.

I received a copy of this book free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion. ( )
