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.

Praise For Little Goblins Ten…
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Jane has fun playing within the nursery rhyme’s parameters, whether peeking in on a family of zombies...howling werewolves (dressed in patchwork overalls), or a rattling ‘father skeleton/ And his little skellies eight.’ Manning’s quirky and expressive monster families are 10 kinds of cute.”
