Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey

Oscar is a wiener dog and all of the other dogs are always making fun of him. So it doesn’t help that one Halloween his mom makes him a bun costume so he looks like a hot dog with mustard. All of the other dogs are vampires and mummies and witches and poor Oscar has to trick-or-treat in his hot dog costume that makes him walk so slowly that by the time he gets to each house, all of the candy is gone.
It turns out to be the best Halloween ever though when a horrible monster (turns out to be a bunch ornery cats in disguise) chases the other dogs into a lake and Oscar is there to not only expose the cats, but to also save his friends. It turns out that his hot dog costume also makes a wonderful life raft. :) My youngest son has read just about every single Halloween picture book that exists and this is one of his favorites.
