2-Peggy the Pig tries not to get scared, but spooky noises get the
better of her. First there is a tapping on her window, followed by a
creaking on the stairs. And just as she calms down and is about to fall
asleep, a white object in the window yowls. Poor Peggy is afraid, but
she's brave enough to open the door when the bell rings, and lo and
behold, she realizes that it is Halloween. Emerging readers will love
reading sounds like "clunkity-clunk" and "creak" with expression and
will enjoy the joke at the end. Amusing illustrations showing the
fearful piglet with dark shadows looming add to the humor.-Anne
