Over in the forest
Where the trees hide the sun
Lived a big mommy monster
And her little monster one.
"Scare!" said the mommy;
"I scare," said the one.
So he scared and he scampered
Where the trees hide the sun.
From monsters to ghosties to goblins, everyone's favorite beasties haunt and howl and rattle their way through their forest home in this silly, spooky twist on the beloved nursery rhyme "Over in the Meadow."
Author Pamela Jane and New York Times bestselling illustrator Jane Manning have created a delicious Halloween treat for readers to enjoy.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My husband and I love classic monsters, so my son received this book for his second birthday. Eye-popping illustrations, especially the zombie, werewolf, and dragon scenes. I especially liked the inclusion of some interesting vocabulary words that you don’t hear often in children’s books, example: the hovel made of sticks. I think that my husband and I enjoy this book as much as my son does.
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. As both the Turkeybird and Littlebug get a little older it¿s not only fun to see them excited about the upcoming holiday, but perhaps even more excited since they have begun to anticipate words and numbers in a book like Little Goblins Ten. The pattern established in the writing by Pamela Jane may be difficult for some at first to read aloud, but I promise that after two or three readings you won¿t have any problem. You may even catch a child or two mouthing the words right along with you. This is the perfect book for the spooky Halloween season with little ones who look forward to not only the candy, but the chance to be excited about counting and cackling like a witch!My original review was posted at There's A Book.
Very sweet and cute!
I think this is a very cute little book. My kids won't give me back my nook. They enjoy listening to it over and over and over again. Sometimes I can get my oldest to read it to his brother, but most times I find my youngest hiding in a corner, by himself listening.
This is an adorable Halloween book full of spooks and monsters. The rhyming prose is crisp, fresh, and fun to read. The illustrations are charming and well executed. A lovely harmony between writing and artwork. This is the perfect book to get you ready for trick or treating!
