Sam Garton's Otter Loves Halloween! is part of his Otter series, which includes Otter in Space and Otter Goes to School. In this book, the adorable and imaginative Otter prepares for Halloween with enthusiasm. She helps Otter Keeper to choose a pumpkin, decorates the house with her friend Teddy, and wants costumes to be super scary.

Otter, however, gets scared when she sees the first round of trick-or-treaters at the door. Otter Keeper has a chat with her and proposes an idea that calms her fears. She gets ready for the trick-or-treaters and Halloween turns out great.


Sam Garton's illustrations are fun and vibrant. The lovable Otter resembles a real child who needs to ease his or her fears during Halloween. Parents can read this story to their children as an example of conquering fear.This book is also a good selection for girls to learn about role models since an early age.
