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.
