Annotations for Trick or Treat, Old Armadillo

Baker & Taylor
On Halloween, Old Armadillo sits inside his little house waiting for his friends to come trick-or-treating.

Boyd Brew
Halloween is full of surprises. Old Armadillo hears the distant sound of laugher and voices as children scamper from house to house. He sets jack-o'-lanterns on the edges of the flagstones. Inside his casita, he settles down before the fire with a mug of hot cocoa and his favorite book of ghost stories, waiting for goblins, pirates, and princesses to come knocking. He is ready for Halloween. Old Armadillo waits and waits and wonders if he ever will be visited by trick-or-treaters. Meanwhile, outside, Roadrunner, Bear, Peccary, and other friends are planning a Halloween surprise for Old Armadillo. But when friends knock on his door, they find another surprise in store. Old Armadillo and his friends from Merry Christmas, Old Armadillo have returned for another holiday. Includes a glossary of Spanish words.
