Danny and Wendell are best friends, and are excited about their new trick-or-treat plan that will ensure them to collect the most candy on Halloween. Is their plan a smash hit, or does it begin to go down-hill? It was bad enough that Christina did not believe in dragons, but now the boys were forced into including her in the group. Were the boys overwhelmed with joy, or did this idea present a problem? Who is the school bully, and what request was presented to the boys? Who set out on a mission to enter the creepy, haunted house, and was the ghost and clown friendly? Danny and Wendell find themselves in one big mess, how do they get out of it? Was Danny's vampire costume a big hit, and who asked Christina to join the group? I highly recommend this fun-filled, delightful children's book to parents of young children. The book is funny, easy-to-read, and is the perfect holiday book for Halloween parties, and celebrations. A wonderful read for children, ages nine through twelve.

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Once a kids' series like this has reached a certain number of books, it always follows through with an obligatory Hallowe'en story and this is Dragonbreath's Hallowe'en entry. Breaking form from the other books where they usually travel to meet with one of Danny's relatives to help them with the situation in which they find themselves, this time Danny, Wendell and classmate Christiana go trick or treating and end up with a real ghost on their hands. Lots of fun! Wendell meets his match with an even geekier kid than himself in Christiana. While Wendell's costume is an hydrogen atom, Christiana's is a salmonella bacteria and Christiana talks science using words even Wendell has to look up in a dictionary. But Christiana has a weakness, her scientific mind leads her to being a skeptic about anything unproven, even the fact that Danny is a dragon! So ultimately it is Christiana who has the hardest time facing a real ghost. An enjoyable book, full of everything we've come to expect from Danny Dragonbreath, with a nice combination of text and brief graphic panels. Fans will be delighted, references are made to adventures from previous books for faithful readers. While not my favourite in the series certainly up to par with the rest. Looking forward to the next volume which features one of my favourite cryptids, the jackalope

My 6 year old daughter LOVED reading this book. There are a lot of words in it that she doesn't know, so if I'm sitting with her when she is reading it, I can teach her some good vocabulary words too. After reading it, she immediately wanted all the other books in the series and wants to be Danny Dragonbreath for Halloween next year (Halloween is tomorrow, so it was too late for this year).

I was a little apprehensive bout ordering these books for my 9-year old son. He's finicky about hos books. I took the risk and he LOVES them. I've purchased every book in the series and he keeps asking for more.

My family has loved this series ever since we ran into 'Ninja Frogs'. This book really lost us with its ghost of a dead child in a clown costume. After reading this with my 7 and 12 year old, all the other books up this point were adventurous and fun, I don't think my now 9 year old has ever regained interest in this series. We did buy the fairies book but only my older child read it. I suggest skipping this one in the series and moving forward. This one really left me thinking, "seriously?" and wishing we had skipped it.

I bought this for my son, 8 years old at the time, and he devoured the book! It's an adventurous read with colorful characters and doesn't weigh them down like a heavier book would (like Harry Potter). Don't let the titles scare you away - these books are fun and harmless and often show concepts of true friendship.

He loved the first one so much, we bought another and then the whole series!

You don't have to read them in order or one to understand the second (etc) It helps, but not necessary.

In this latest volume of the series, the story lags a little. The artwork is just as good and the sarcasm drips from the page. If you liked the others, you'll like this one too. I would not recommend starting the series by reading this one because of the slower pace of the story. Still enjoyable and a very quick read because of the graphic nature of the series.

I have two children ages 8 and 14. Both of them (yes even the 14 year old) love this series of books. My 8 year old son will even read this in one sitting without putting the book down.
