Raccoon, Alligator, Pig, and Bear are going trick-or-treating in their neighborhood. They are hoping that they will be given "good things to eat" when they visit the houses along the street.

Their first stop is at Mrs. Monkey's home. The good lady of the house gives the children wonderful peppermints to put into their trick-or-treat buckets.

Next the costumed quartet goes to Mr. Giraffe's House. This time the friends are given some chocolate to add to their stash of goodies.

Little children will greatly enjoy this lift-the-flap and scratch-and-sniff title. On all but one of the double page spreads there is a flap to lift and a picture underneath to scratch and sniff. With sturdy board pages and delicious smells to enjoy, this is a title that will surely make Halloween all the sweeter.
