Literary Pet Halloween Costume Ideas

We don’t think animals should be denied the right to get into the Halloween spirit. The video embedded above shares a cornucopia of pet costume ideas for Halloween, but we are building a list literary costume ideas for the galley cat (or dog) in your life.

We suggest: Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George, or The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Tweet your literary pet ideas with the hashtag #literarypetcostumes to or share them in the comments section.

The Book Bench hosted the Critterati contest this year, asking owners to submit a photo of their pet dressed like a literary character. Last year’s five winners included a puppy imitating Hunter S. Thompson. This year’s winners will be announced today.

Alexandra Horowitz, author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know is one of the judges, even though she thinks dogs don’t actually like wearing costumes.
