T. Rex Trick-or-Treats (Paperback)
From the Publisher:
All of his friends have clever, scary costumes to wear for Halloween, but T. rex cannot decide what kind of costume to wear on Halloween night--the darkest, scariest night of the year. Reprint.
Join T. Rex and his friends as they try to find the perfect scary costume for Halloween trick-or-treating. Is it a bat? Or a cat? Or maybe a jack-o'-lantern? Or maybe T. Rex should just wear his big, toothy grin.
Lois G. Grambling and Jack E. Davis's delightful, frightful tale teaches that, sometimes, what you need just might be in the last place you look—yourself.
T. Rex longs to be as scary as possible this Halloween. After carving a jack o' lantern that has neighborhood kids shrieking, he tries to think up a costume that's very, very scary. As he munches on a lollipop in his burgundy, dragonfly-festooned dressing gown, he considers and rejects costumes. A ghost? No, his friend, Diplodocus, is going as a ghost. Perhaps some bones painted on his clothes? Wait, Stegosaurus will be a glowing skeleton, so that's out. What about a witch? Nope, Iguanodon is all over that idea. What on earth could possibly be scarier? With Jack E. Davis's humorous, whimsical art.
