Carl's Halloween

Carl's Halloween
Alexandra Day
Carl, a sweet Rottweiler, and his little companion are going to hand out candy to all of the trick-or-treaters who will be stopping by the house. But when mother leaves them alone so she can help grandmother, they decide to go knock on some doors themselves. They dress up and head out for an evening of adventure. When they return they carefully place everything back in its place so they won't be found out. 

The Carl books are part of a series that can also be read alone. There aren't very many words in the book, but the illustrations help tell an adorable story that children will fall in love with. The book would be a great addition to any library, school, or home where children love looking at the pictures as much as listening to the story. Parents, however, might not enjoy the story as much since it tells of a mother leaving her child alone to answer the door and promotes the child leaving home without the parents' knowledge. If reality is suspended and fantasy embraced this will be a much loved book.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
