Kids Can Press is back with two more Puppy Sam books, written by Mary Labatt and illustrated by Marisol Sarrazin. In the second book, Sam wants to eat candy when she spies her owners giving treats to children dressed in Hallowe’en costumes. After Sam’s persistent efforts to secure candy fail, she finally gets her wish thanks to a child disguised as a pirate. These books are sure to be enjoyed by animal-loving children who are learning to read. mRb
