Angela loves Halloween! It¿s always so much fun to get dressed up and receive treats, especially from friendly Mrs. Walker. She gives out the best candy apples. Thus, Halloween should be a happy and stress free event. Unfortunately, it's not that way for Angela. You see, while Angela delights in her costumes, her older sister Bernadette always seems to pick the absolute perfect disguises every year. Somehow Bernadette¿s costumes are never affected by adverse weather conditions and always seem to entertain the neighborhood including Mrs. Walker. It¿s just not fair! Angela wants to look as good as Bernadette. She wants special treatment and treats. Therefore, Angela decides to become a ¿costume copycat¿ and starts wearing Bernadette¿s old costumes every Halloween. Will Angela finally be admired and given special treats? The Costume Copycat by Maryann Macdonald is a very cute and relatable Halloween story. The illustrations are bright, endearing, and comical. The story is perfect for story times because it is all about the favorite childhood pastime of trick-or-treating. Furthermore, this is one holiday picture book that has a true and interesting plot.
