Enzo, the lovable mutt from Garth Stein’s New York Times bestselling novel The Art of Racing in the Rain, experiences his first Halloween with friends Denny and Zoë in his third (not so) very scary picture book.
Brooke and I were excited to catch up on Enzo since the last book we read on his adventures were from last Christmas! Enzo, the adorable and brave little doggie and friend of Zoë, may have bitten off more than he could chew with this Halloween season. Enzo doesn’t know what to expect and jack-o’-lanterns that light up the streets, giant spiders weave webs on porches, and ordinary lawns become creepy graveyards as every child and dog transforms into a creature. Enzo (who is dressed like a little dragon) wants to protect his fairy princess friend, Zoë, from all the monsters and goblins hanging out in their neighborhood, but it’s a little SCARY! Relax, Enzo! Halloween is just for make-believe and fun, but the little dog needs a little reassurance from his family that Halloween is more about the treats than the tricks. Enzo soon realizes that Halloween is a spook-tacular time and even gets to participate in an exciting trick-or-treat parade. It’s a frightfully fun Halloween for Zoë and her Halloween-skeptic doggie, Enzo. Whoooo hooooooo!
