About the Book

A festive Halloween picture book inspired by the abundantly decorated cars and trucks, snazzy costumes, and sweet treats of community-centric Trunk-or-Treat events!

Snazzy costumes, spooky decorations, and sticky candy…all on WHEELS! This rhyming Halloween picture book appeals to car and vehicle lovers with an ode to the growing Trunk-or-Treat trend. 

Trunk-or-Treats have been gaining in popularity the last few years as a safer alternative or addition to classic door-to-door trick-or-treating. Follow a family as they attend a community Trunk-or-Treat during the Halloween season!

Critical Praise

A newish Halloween trend gets a rollicking treatment...Expressed in bouncy rhymes, this entertaining read demonstrates that Halloween can be a community-focused event; here, the holiday offers an opportunity to celebrate with friends and neighbors rather than simply gather candy. The colorful digital illustrations are full of sprightly Halloween gusto. No trick: This tale will be a treat for young readers this October. — Kirkus Reviews

Through catchy rhymes and vibrant illustrations, this book ingeniously reimagines the classic “Trick-or-Treat, Smell My Feet” song to immerse readers in the enchanting world of trunk-or-treat festivities...not only a delightful read-aloud but also a celebration of the spirit of Halloween.” — School Library Journal
