Summary
In this sequel to Alpha Oops! The Day Z Went First, the naughty alphabet is back. The show is about to start, but A is not ready to take the stage! The pumpkins, who are the show's organizers, call in H to save the day. After all, "Halloween can't start with any other letter." The alphabet comes out in a disorderly manner. Each letter wears and represents a Halloween costume. P is a pirate. G is a goblin. V is a vampire. F is Frankenstein. B is supposed to be a buccaneer but gets into trouble only to steal the show at its end.

Comments
The illustrations are bright and modern. The story is funny and more suitable for children who have a strong grasp of the alphabet. Children who are starting to learn the alphabet might get a bit confused about the letters coming out of sequence. In this case, parents would prefer to focus on the Halloween characters the letters represent.
