What to Wear II: Llama, Llama, Trick or Treat!


Llama Llama is shopping with Mama for his Halloween costume. He peers through the show window at the choices. Green ghouls? Little monsters? Inside, he goes through the costumes hanging on the rack. An astronaut? A bumblebee? It's so hard to choose!

Back home, Llama Llama and his best friend Nellie Gnu have fun decorating the house for the big night. They scoop out the pumpkin's insides to get it ready to be a Jack-o'-Lantern. They fill the big and little candy bowls for doorbell ringers and guests.

But what will Llama Llama be when it is time to go out trick-or-treating?

Anna Dewdney's admittedly adorable little llama is back with a must-have Halloween board book, Llama Llama Trick or Treat (Viking Press, 2014). Dewdney cleverly keeps the suspense going until the final last-page reveal in which Llama Llama greets the princessy Nellie wearing a very spooky disguise. Dewdney's candy-corn decorated holiday offering features her trademark short and punchy rhymes and her inimitably appealing little cast of characters for a Halloween book that toddlers and preschoolers will love to have for their first Halloween treat.
