One blue shoe accompanied by a little red shoe step boldly into a haunted house. These two shoes appear in almost every illustration as they explore a house full of scary Halloween scenes. Ghosts drift in the foyer, a vampire is asleep in the tub, and witches wave hello. Spiders creep and monsters greet as the shoes go from room to room. Once outside the spooky attraction, it is clear that the big blue shoes belong to a daddy and the little red ones belong to his orange haired little girl. Dad is ready to go, but his daughter hesitates. This spunky girl enters the house for another round.
