Grade 2-4 With three popular earlier titles to their credit, Amy and Allie are back with an adventure that their fans should enjoy. Here, the Gator Girls are desperate to win the Halloween costume contest, desperate enough to brave going to see the mysterious fortune-teller Madame Lulu. But the seer is not the least bit helpful, and the two friends struggle to come up with an idea so unique that they will take the prize over their male competitors. While they don't win the contest, they do find a lost lizard and are rewarded in a happy ending. Munsinger's cartoon-style watercolor illustrations are bright, expressive, and add to the humor of the story line. A warm and cheerful holiday selection.
