Summary

The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey

This is the story of a dog named Oscar. Oscar is a half-a-dog tall and one-and-a-half dogs long. Because of his unusual size, Oscar gets made fun of – a lot. So when Oscar’s mother makes him dress up as a hot dog in a bun for Halloween, Oscar’s problems go from bad to worse. Students will laugh out loud as they learn about text structures, use picture clues to make inferences, determine importance, and make predictions about events in this fun Halloween read aloud.
