Happy Halloweenie

Little Simon. Jul. 2023. 30p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781665930604.
Toddler-PreS–Weenie the hot dog is not sure what to wear for Halloween. Their closet is full of costumes. Should they dress as an ice cream, a banana, a ghost, or a knight? Weenie can’t decide whether to be cute in a pumpkin costume or scary as a vampire. Should they be yucky, dressed as a zombie, or sweet, as a puppy? With so many choices, Weenie finally decides to be a little bit of everything! Adorable illustrations will delight fans of hot dogs. Certain illustrations, including pumpkin, ice cream, and shark, will be easily identifiable by children; others, such as hairy, hairless, or green, will be less clear, especially for the target audience. As far as a story goes, there’s not much here, but those waiting to craft a story time around costumes will find a suitable addition in this board book.
VERDICT An additional purchase for most libraries.
