It's Halloween and Minerva Louise is as fearless, and clueless, as ever. She investigates the witches, ghosts, and goblins visiting the farm and delights in trick-or-treating for the very first time. Little farmers with pointed hats and very strange farming tools are running around. Folks are handing out the most delicious (candy) corn. The neighbors even compliment Minerva on her fine costume! (Uh, what costume?) Youngsters will cheer the return of the intrepid but birdbrained chicken. Minerva Louise, unquestionably a star, ( Publishers Weekly ), bumbles through everyone's favorite spooky evening in her signature lovable, silly style.
It's Minerva Louise's first Halloween, and she finds it exciting but puzzling.
