Boo! Halloween is here -- the spookiest night of the year! And Enzo's been warned by ZoŽ about the mischief that's to come.

Soon, every child in the neighborhood has been changed into some kind of creature -- witches and werewolves and ghosts. Even ZoŽ's been transformed into a fairy princess. Enzo's worried they've been put under some kind of spell. As he prepares to lead the Halloween parade, ZoŽ needs to help him learn there's really nothing to be afraid of at all.

Sparkly ornaments are brought out, the neighborhood glitters with lights, and snow is in the air. When ZoŽ tells Enzo that they are going on a hunt for the perfect Christmas tree, Enzo isn't so sure. Why would they put a tree inside the house? Enzo knows he's in for an adventure.

As ZoŽ and Enzo go on the ultimate hunt, ZoŽ loses her way. But discovers that her family is never far behind.

Meet Enzo the puppy, one very special mutt. Enzo knows he's different from other dogs. He's sure of it. But people never understand him when he barks, and it drives him crazy!

Life on the farm is pretty quiet -- except when he races the cars that come down the barn road. Because Enzo is fast!

But when Enzo meets a little girl named ZoŽ and her father, Denny, everything changes. Enzo embarks on an action-packed adventure as he makes the long journey from the farm to the city, discovers just how big the world is, and finds the family that was truly meant to be his.

Five ďriotousĒ retellings of well-known nursery tales (such as The Three Little Pigs), all starring the very same dastardly wolf, who is just trying to get a meal! They are presented with ďvim and verveĒ in comic panels and puns by the spousal duo of Alley and Alley.
