*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 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!

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.

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.

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!

I love reading this book and my toddler loves having it read to him. Cute, rhymey story (based off the pattern of another classic story) with great illustrations. Has all the monsters but isn't scary for a second. Wish it came as a board book, because someone isn't ready for regular pages yet... :)

My grandson and I read this book year round. It's positively magical! And for a while when he was three he didn't want to hear about the fire breathing dragons... but now at five he's fine! Pamela Jane's rhymes are delightful and my grandson recites them around the house. Mannings drawings are fabulous. It's a total winner!

Little Gobins Ten by Pamela Jane and illustrated by Jane Manning is a fantastic Halloween version of the classic folk song "Over in the Meadow." Instead of turtles and foxes this version features silly zombies, goblins and bats. My students loved the book and the text fit the song well making it very singable.

This book will be loved by readers 3-8

I can not say enough how much I love this book! I have a 2 year old son who loves to be read to. I bought this book because I had another book by this author that I enjoyed reading. This one is by far my favorite. My son lets me read it to him over and over again. He makes sounds along with the book and we even rattle together when we get to the skeletons. He knows that witches cackle and spooks shout Boo! On each page after reading the first paragraph we count together how many "babies" are on the page. My 2 year old can now count to 10 beautifully! It is well written, and so fun to read! I love sharing story time with my little monster one!!!
