The Hallo-Wiener

The Hallo-Wiener

by Dav Pilkey Illustrated by Dav Pilkey

When is a hot dog not a hot dog? When he becomes a hero sandwich!

Pilkey delivers a hilarious Halloween treat in this story about Oscar, a dachshund doomed to wear a hot dog costume on Halloween. When he saves the day — and night — Oscar proves that while he may be short on height, he's long on heart. A tale trick-or-treaters will relish. Watercolor, india ink, and acrylic illustrations.
