Illustrations – Dan McGuiness
It’s almost Halloween and Hotdog, Kev and Lizzie are busy working on their costumes. Meanwhile, the new lolly shop is hosting a competition so when they’re not trying to perfect their sewing skills, the friends are cooking up a storm.
While I loved the Halloween costumes the friends ended up wearing, I haven’t found the last couple of books in this series as funny as I did the earlier ones.
It was good to finally meet some of Lizzie’s family and kids should enjoy trying to solve the spooky mystery.
I always look forward to Dan McGuiness’ illustrations and they’re as fun as ever.
Humpty Dumpty Kev, Kev on roller skates and Kev essentially having any expression at all were the standouts for me.
Once Upon a Blurb
The lolly shop’s having a contest to see who can come up with the best new candy! Meanwhile, it’s Halloween and there’s a ghost on the loose!
Can Hot Dog and his friends create a winning treat and capture the spooky stranger?! It would be sweeeeeet!
