I didn't expect it upon opening this book, but this is actually a Halloween story! How fun!!! In the story of Goblin Hood we have little gremlins that make Halloween candy all year long. They are protected by Goblin Hood who keeps them and the candy that they make safe. However, this year a witch drops on by and casts a curse and takes all of the Halloween candy! The story is quite fun and it is told in verse. This, to me, only adds to the fun of the story. It makes it very hard not to get into what you are reading, making it that much more entertaining at storytime! The illustrations are gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. They are bright and fun and very well done. This is definitely a story I will be adding into rotation come October for storytime!
