This book is about two dogs named Hank and Drover. They are out and about trying to figure out what a sound is that is waking them up. The two dogs go over to a Slim?s house. They had to go outside in the backyard to investigate the sounds. To find out what happens at the end you?ll have to read the book. There is a lesson to be learned -never get too curious about mysterious sounds, especially in the dark.

I think the book is really good and I liked the book because it had to do with Halloween and two dogs. I love to read about dogs. My favorite part in the book is when the trick-or-treaters chased Hank and he got scared. The reason this is my favorite part is because Hank is really funny and he is a dog that is frightened easily. There is one character that changed in the book and it was Drover because he wasn?t scared any more. This book is one of a series and it is really interesting if you sit down and read the book.

I recommend this book for any audience to read. I think all ages would enjoy reading this book because of the humor. The story might interest readers that are in the age groups from 4th?6th Grade.
