In this follow-up to Peep and Egg: I'm Not Hatching, Peep can't wait to go trick-or-treating with Egg. But Egg is NOT trick-or-treating! No way, no how. With monsters, witches, and mummies out there, it is just too scary. Even when Peep tells Halloween jokes to soothe Egg's fears, Egg is not cracking. How can Peep help Egg realize that trick-or-treating isn't so scary when you have someone you love by your side?
A light-hearted story about opening oneself up to new experiences!

"Wan’s seemingly digital illustrations use bold black lines filled with color and only a few added details to keep the focus on the characters, who are pleasantly rounded and easily recognizable farm animals with simple line-and-oval facial features that show remarkable range of emotion." – Kirkus Reviews
"It’s a familiar story of opening oneself up to new experiences, but Gehl’s lighthearted dialogue and Wan’s chunky, emotive graphics keep it feeling fresh." – Publisher's Weekly
