Wendell, Floyd, Alice, and Mona discover that “anything can happen on Halloween” when their annual holiday outing turns into an unexpected adventure. Getting tricks instead of treats, receiving Broccoli Chews and Eggplant Fizzlers instead of ordinary candy, and being chased by Leona Fleebish and her gang of witchy bullies turn the evening from fun to fright. But Floyd’s pirate costume has some unexpected swashbuckling in it, Wendell’s mad scientist outfit offers some surprises, and Mona’s wand from her fairy princess garb is no fake. Quick-thinking, poetry, and magic wand save the fearless foursome from the clutches of Leona. Small ghosts and goblins will enjoy this fantastical tale of Halloween night. (Picture book. 4-7)
