Synopsis: A humorous Halloween story finds the mortified dachshund Oscar dressing up as a hot dog for Halloween and having to save the day, proving to his snickering friends that while he may be short on height, he is long on heart.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  If your dog or pet dressed up in costume, what could he be? What other costumes could the wiener-dog have used? Draw the pet in costume, or make it into a bookmark!
•  What's your costume going to be? What would it be if you could be anything in the world? Draw!

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
