SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

The story Click, Clack, Boo! follows the series’ favorite character, Farmer Brown. Readers learn that Farmer Brown does not like Halloween.

Things like witches, pirates and jack-o’-lanterns scare him. Farmer Brown decides to put candy on the porch and stay inside on Halloween night. Meanwhile, the farm animals are getting reading for the Halloween Party in the barn.

As the different animals make their way to the party, Farmer Brown hears all kinds of noises in the night. He gets more scared each time he hears a noise, and one of them is getting closer and knocks on the door! However, when Farmer Brown hears a “quackle” he jumps out of bed and goes to the door.

He finds his bowl of candy gone and a note inviting him to the party instead. When Farmer Brown shows up to the party in his pajamas, he wins best costume!
