Arthur is going to be Superman for Halloween. He does not want to take his little sister trick-or-treating but he has to. Arthur and D.W. go trick-or-treating with six other kids. His friends bring snacks and they say it is part of their bodies. Everyone's afraid to go into a scary house. Arthur goes anyways and finds out that the person who lives there is an old lady who is very nice. Her house is scary because she is too old to take care of it. The kids decide that they will help her take care of it in the future.

The best part of the story is when D.W. gets stuck in the door because it's very funny. This story reminds Lauren of Jesus because she is not allowed to go trick-or-treating on Halloween. Dylan likes the pictures in this book because he liked looking at all of the different costurmes.

You should read this book because it has very cool and scary pictures.
