From the illustrator of the Melvin Beederman, SUPERHERO series comes a story about a masked hero and his trusty steed. Together they save Halloween from ruthless toilet paper-tossing mummies and pumpkin-sucking vampires.

No siree, Halloween won't be canceled anytime soon, not while the Halloween Kid's around. With a rootin' tootin' Halloween monster-shootin' text and retro-modern illustrations, The Halloween Kid will lasso in readers both young and old. Because who doesn't love a hero who defends the right to trick or treat? Yee-Ha-lloween.

Praise For The Halloween Kid

"Goody-stealing goblins, watch out: A stick-horse-riding do-gooder is comin' to the rescue of beleaguered trick-or-treaters, wielding catchphrases as skillfully as he does his lasso." - Time Out New York Kids, October 2010
