For Enzo, the Fourth of July means three things: fireworks, family, and car races! This year Zoë is finally old enough to compete in the Kids’ Kart Challenge. But when one of the boys at the track says that girls aren’t fast drivers, Zoë gets nervous and backs out of the race. Enzo knows it’s up to him to help his family regain the confidence to compete on the big day.

Jack-o’-lanterns light up the streets, giant spiders weave webs on porches and ordinary lawns become creepy graveyards while every child and dog transforms into a creature of some kind --- including Enzo! Enzo the dragon is determined to protect fairy princess Zoë from the monsters and goblins in their neighborhood, but when things get a little too scary, his family is there to reassure him that everything is make-believe and only meant to be fun --- just like the wonderful trick-or-treat parade that ends this spook-tastic night!

Enzo the puppy's action-packed adventure begins when he makes the journey from the farm to the city (bark twice for faster!), discovers just how big the world is, and finds the family that was meant to be his. Life on the farm is pretty quiet—except when he races the cars that come down the barn road. Because Enzo is fast. He knows he's different from other dogs. But people never understand Enzo when he barks, and it drives him crazy! Then one day Enzo meets a little girl named Zoë and her father, Denny, and everything changes.
