Arnold cannot wait for his class Halloween party to get started. He practices walking like a pirate and acting like a pirate all day…he wants to win the “scariest costume” prize. When it’s time for the children to change into their Halloween costumes though, he can’t find his anywhere! He is so sad about it that he hides under the white drop cloth the children use when they paint. In a cute and unexpected twist to the story, the drop cloth ends up being his costume and he does end up winning the “scariest costume” award. Your children will love to see who ends up wearing Arnold’s pirate costume at the end of the story, too. This book so captures the anticipation children have on the day of Halloween and the disappointment when things don’t go as planned.
