*Starred Review
Numerous titles interpreting "Over in the Meadow" have been published, but trust the team of Jane and Manning to conjure up an impressive new vision for Halloween... the rhyming text  is rich with alliteration and strong action words.  Truly satisfying. (Picture book. 3-6) Kirkus Reviews.

K-Gr 2 - "Over in the Meadow" gets a Halloween makeover in this picture book...Manning's muted blue-green, brown-orange illustrations fill the spreads with kid-friendly monsters.  Libraries in need of monster-filled Halloween tales may consider this as an additional purchase - School Library Journal.

"In a gently spooky spin on "Over in the Meadow" that counts up to 10, various ghouls and beasts groan, swoop, and haunt. Jane has fun playing within the nursery rhyme’s parameters...Manning’s quirky and expressive monster families are 10 kinds of cute."—Publishers Weekly

"The classic counting rhyme 'Over in the Meadow' goes spooky in this Halloween riff, which should endure well past Oct. 31. Beginning with its opening 'big mommy monster / and her little monster one,' readers are rewarded with ample humor and wit. And there's a sweetness to the parental-offspring interactions in the playful, alliterative text."—New York Times Book Review

From the Author

In a gently spooky spin on "Over in the Meadow" that counts up to 10, various ghouls and beasts groan, swoop, and haunt. Jane has fun playing within the nursery rhyme's parameters... Manning's quirky and expressive monster families are 10 kinds of cute. Ages 3-7. (PW Aug.)

This book is based on the old song, "Over in the Meadow" and except for a couple of lines, fits the song pattern exactly.

The illustrations, which include traditional Halloween characters as well as some fire-breathing dragons and howling wolves, are colorful and charming. They should not frighten even the most sensitive child.

This would make a good read-aloud for Halloween and an even better sing-aloud.

I recently acquired this book for my 4 year old music classroom after noting that the text fit with the melody to "Over in the Meadow." My students LOVE it and so do I!!!! Not only is it very singable, but the illustrations are very attractive as well. I had my Pre-K students "act out" the story. We even incorporated percussion instruments. Later in the week my 4th grade students saw the percussion instruments and asked about what we were doing. So...even though it was not in the plan, the 4th graders did the same thing. If anything they loved this book more than the Pre-K students did! I was very surprised at that. I highly recommend this book for use in the music classroom and love it when story songs are published!

This is a fantastic read aloud and currently the favorite book in our house. With so many trite and tacky holiday books out there, it's a breath of fresh air to find beautiful writing paired with whimsical pictures. Every time we've read it to my five year old grandson he asks to hear it again. We do all of the different spooky voices together aloud. The language is a joy to read, poetic and fun and the illustrations are full of great color and kid appeal. My grandson told me not to put it away with the other books on the shelf, but to leave it on the table! Kids know great books when they see them!

My son was just under 2.5 years when he became very afraid of monsters at night. I wanted to introduce the idea that supposed scary things such as monsters, ghosts, etc. can actually be fun and loving. This book was perfect! It is all about mommy and daddy creepy crawlies and their babies. As an added fun bit I encourage my son to do the activities along with the book (ie: mommy mummy tells her babies to groan, so after that line I say "can you groan like a mummy?" and we both do our best silly groans!). My son still had difficulty with the dark and still says he sees monsters; however, if I ask if they are scary monsters, he'll say no, they are nice or happy monsters.

Just and FYI: This is a Halloween themed book. On the last two pages the mommy monster and her little monster go Trick-o-Treating. I wanted to mention that in case it isn't what some folks had in mind.

Another book that helped with his fear of monsters is "Goodnight, Little Monster" by Helen Ketteman.

We got this at the library about a week ago and we have had to read it twice every night. My three-and-a-half year old loves the zombies and the mummies- I have to read those pages multiple times. He walks around saying "Stare," "We Stare." I have it down on our wish list and will have to order it before Halloween. It's a great book to learn how to count. Illustrations are adorable.

It's always a fun read when it can be sung. This is a fun book! It has all the concepts of a great number book with the delightful imaginings of Halloween. Little ones will love the art and the colors throughout the book. Both my girls enjoyed this book and we will be reading and singing it again and again. --Daddy's Girls Book Reviews

Cackling, rattling and howling at the moon all of the spooky creatures in Little Goblins Ten are getting ready for the biggest day of the year, Halloween. From one to ten they count up until they've perfected their talent that will ensure their success on the big trick or treat day. With monsters & bats and ghosts & goblins each and every Halloween creature is practicing and waiting for their own chance at Halloween fun!

It should come as no surprise that one of the holidays I loved the most as a child was Halloween. With it's costumes and of course, pillow cases full of candy, there was always something to look forward to. Now as a parent of two children who are suddenly getting very excited for this time of year, I'm feeling very nostalgic. Enough so that I may just have to grant Littlebug's wish of a witch costume...especially if it's one as cute as the witch's in Little Goblins Ten.

After a couple of readings of Little Goblins Ten the rhyming and sing-song sounds of the book came to life. Both Turkeybird and Littlebug can't help but point to each of the creatures on the page and attach names of people they know to each one. Primarily because we each need a costume, so why not? And the illustrations are fantastic, so it's easy to see how they would be drawn to each of the characters. Halloween can be a scary time for kids, but it's nice to see a picture book with beautiful illustrations that are still a little spooky, but not frightening to young kiddos.

Little Goblins Ten was yet another Pamela Jane hit in our home and I'm positive it will continue to be.
