More “spooktacular” fun with The Spooky Scavenger Hunt Book from Penguin Young Readers Group
For a little scary Dinosaur Train Halloween fun – enjoy reading The Spooky Scavenger Hunt Book from Penguin Young Readers Group in which Mr. Pteranodon takes Buddy and Tiny on a nighttime trip to the Big Pond for a spooky nature walk!

Ages 4 – 8; SRP $3.99.
Halloween Costumes to Make at Home: Additionally, for those who are feeling a little adventurous, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop — the folks who brought you Elmo and Miss Piggy, among many others — have created a Buddy costume that can be made at home!
And don’t forget to watch Halloween themed episodes from Dinosaur Train to air on PBS Kids®:
In Haunted Roundhouse, dad takes the kids on a special Night Train to Troodon Town, where the Troodons have decorated their Roundhouse into a “haunted house” for a spooky party. The kids end up meeting a strange new nocturnal creature – a mammal named Vlad Volaticotherium, who was hiding in the roundhouse trying to get some sleep. And in Big Pond Pumpkin Patch, the Pteranodon family learns more about the customs of their neighbors, the Lambeosaurus family, when they are invited for the first time to accompany them to the Big Pond to celebrate “Gourd Day” – a kind of Mesozoic Halloween. The kids see their first pumpkins, and Larry Lambeosaurus even shows our family how to hollow them out and carve faces into them.
Dinosaur Train™ is an Emmy-nominated and Parents’ Choice Silver Honor TV series, and is one of the top ten shows for kids ages 2 to 5.* Young viewers join Buddy and his adoptive family of Pteranodons on whimsical adventures through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans as they unearth basic concepts in natural science, natural history and paleontology. The Dinosaur Train is a colorful locomotive, customized to accommodate all kinds of dinosaurs, and it has the ability to visit the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous worlds, while the Train’s conductor, a knowledgeable Troodon, provides passengers with fascinating facts along the way.
My thoughts? My kids love Halloween stories, so The Spooky Scavenger Hunt was a big hit… and as for the costume, we reviewed the Buddy costume and they have been having a ball running playing dinosaur and putting on a little play with the character that goes a long with the book. So fun to see how their little minds come up with the funnest things!
