Who else lives over in the hollow? A papa mummy and his little mummies two, a mama owl and her little owlets three...and more!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION
This is an enjoyable, but not scary addition to a Halloween collection.

SCRIPPS HOWARD NEWS SERVICE
"Author Rebecca Dickinson clearly had fun giving the classic children's song Over in the Meadow a Halloween makeover, while S. Britt's illustrations burst with wild action and color."

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"...enough ghoulish creatures to satisfy even the most diehard Halloween fans."

Children's Literature - Michele C. Hughes
This seasonal treasure is full of whimsical monsters and delightful refrains, with the bonus of counting practice. On each two-page spread, a different Halloween-themed creature does a call-and-response refrain with its offspring, and with each page turn comes a higher number of children. It starts with a spider telling her "little spidey one" to spin, to which the daughter replies "I spin." In successive pages, mummies, owls, vampires, bats, and others instruct their children, and the children respond in a way that readers can predict and join in. The responses lend themselves to robust participation, with phrases like "We eek," "We flap," and "We stomp!" which will engage the reader's whole body over the course of the book. Readable rhymes and repetition make this book a pleasure to read aloud. Vibrant illustrations turn potentially scary monsters into humorous caregivers of little ones, offering lots of details to captivate readers and reward them for paying attention. Reviewer: Michele C. Hughes
School Library Journal
PreS-K—A Halloween-themed counting book inspired by "Over in the Meadow." Mummies, owls, bats, and more help readers count to 13. "Over in the hollow,/wrapped in old sheets and glue,/live an old, moldy mummy/and his little mummies two./'LURCH!' moans the mummy./'WE LURCH!' moan the two./And they lurch into the mist,/wrapped in old sheets and glue." The rhyme and rhythm flow well, making this a good choice for reading aloud. The mixed-media illustrations have a retro cartoon feel and are spooky, but not scary—just like the text. The large pictures make it easy to count along, and kids will enjoy the funny details. This should be a hit at Halloween storytimes.—Laura Stanfield, Campbell County Public Library, Ft. Thomas, KY

    My boys LOVE this book! I love it on MANY levels!

    Now we are BIG into Halloween at this house (boys, 3 and 4) and this is a delightful picture book with all your Halloween favorites: mummies, vampires, bats, ghosts, and more. (Score 1) The illustrations are cute but not sugary sweet. They are detailed and give us much to talk about.(Score 2) (We even get in some math lessons as they count 1 spider, 2 mummies, 3 owls,... all the way to spooky 13 ghosts! -- Score 3) The verse is a Halloween adaptation to the song "Over in the Meadow." Since they already know the melody, they were able to pick up the words very quickly. In fact, both have already memorized the words and read this back to me. (Score 4) Finally, we love music around here and I love hearing the boys singing this book as they go about their day. (Score 5) It is the first book they pick up in the morning and the last to put down at night. And if we forget to take it with us, we know it by heart!

    Very good artwork almost makes up for the poor writing.

    The artwork is fun and bright. The images are very "kid friendly" and carry a fun, creepy halloween feeling at the same time, lots of bright colors and smiling faces on traditionaly scary subjects. the story, such as it is seems rather pointless, the verse is forced and not very elegant. I would only suggest it to very young children for the artwork alone. This is the kind of artwork anyone would love to decorate their house, or in my case, my apartment with on halloween.

    Now I take delight in things that go bump in the night!

    What a wonderful book! The illustrations are truly extraordinary--rich colors and a fantastic amount of detail to keep one's eyes busy. Each little character is infused with such personality and charm, and so far my nephew has gotten a kick out of me reading and imitating along to the pictures. Really some of the most enjoyable monsters (ghosts and creatures) I've seen, and it is a delight to turn the page and pick out a favorite every time. And what a perfect way to get the little ones prepared to start counting their treats come Halloween!

    The Best Kid's book I've seen in ages!

    A great book for young and old! The illustrations are BEYOND amazing! Richly colored and full of funny details to discover. If you like looking at good things and hate being bored then you best order this book with speedy shipping! Or slap on your jetpants and whoosh on over to see your nearest bookseller! Don't forget your helmet!
