When the Kid finds his job a little tougher than expected, the neighbors help out to reclaim the day and the fun.
This book is cute, especially the colorful illustrations with a retro sort of look. The story too, is a cute one, but I had a issue with the terrible grammar which I'm guessing was meant to be cute, but just really bugged me.
"He wasn't afraid if nothin".
"In fact he done did such a good job at wranglin Halloween Hoodlums, that Halloween was just dandy for years".If you can get beyond the writing style you most likely will enjoy this book. Recommended for grades K-2.
