SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT: 

Dav Pilkey’s book, The Hallo-Wiener, is about a dachshund named Oscar. All of the other dogs in Oscar’s class make fun of him for the way he looks and call him a wiener dog.

Normally, the teasing would bother Oscar, but not on Halloween. He can’t wait to wear a scary costume. However, when he gets home from school he finds his mother made him a surprise, a hotdog costume!

Oscar doesn’t want to hurt his mom’s feelings so he wears the costume. Of course, the other dogs tease him for wearing it. While trick-or-treating, Oscar has a hard time keeping up with the other dogs because of the costume and misses out on all the candy. As the other dogs head home, they pass a graveyard.

That’s when they see a scary creature and they’re so scared they run into a pond. When Oscar comes along, he can see the feet under the costume, it’s just some cats! Oscar scares off the cats and rescues his friends from the water. Oscar is no longer the wiener dog, but the Hero Sandwich!
