A romping, stomping Halloween extravaganza

"Hats for queens with diamonds bright,
hats for brides all dressed in white.
Hats for fancy race-car drivers,
hats with air for deep-sea divers."

It’s Halloween night and the street is filled with every sort of character imaginable. But where are they going?

Come join the bats, witches, ghosts, and goblins as they march down the street to a great big Halloween party.

Full of fun and surprises, the bouncy rhythm and exuberant pictures will make readers want to pick up a hat and try something new.
