Doodle Pequeño and his trilingual goat, Valencia (an English, Spanish, and "Goat Language" speaker) have just moved to Southern California. The apartment they share with mama is packed with unopened boxes. It is Halloween and among the holiday's trick-o-treaters comes a boy who wears dresses, Reno, like the city in Nevada. There is comedy and danger as Doodle and Reno evade capture from the evil pumpkin-wielding troll, Baumgartner, and out run their nemesis, Marjoram, and her little brother, Toph all while the Santa Anna winds rap at the door. The Transition of Doodle Pequeño is a story of two boys who become friends in spite of their differences while examining the consequences of misused language, providing insight into the lives of Mexican-immigrant children and interrogating the issues of gender-identity and homophobic bullying.
