About the Book
Mouse's ravenous appetite has gotten him into trouble again! On a dark and spooky night, he hitches a ride in a trick-or-treat sack, hoping to get some Halloween candy for himself. But where is Mouse being taken? After taking a tumble and getting caught in the rain, Mouse finds shelter in a creaky old house. He hears a rattle. A skeleton? He sees a shape float by. A ghost? But brave Mouse is not afraid. "Boo!" he cries. The house is not so scary after all. Lucky for Mouse, a trail of candy guides him safely home to his hidey-hole.
