Description

Over in the Woodland, where the mythic creatures roam,

Lived a noble griffin pride that protects the Woodland home.

“Guard,” said the mother. “We will guard every home.” 

So her young griffins flew where the mythic creatures roam.

With gorgeously detailed illustrations and rhythmic text, Over in the Woodland is a magical adventure sure to capture the imagination of readers young and old. Based on the classic children's rhyme "Over in the Meadow," this version replaces frogs and birds with mermaids, dwarves, centaurs, and other creatures of the Woodland realm. Count from one phoenix to ten griffins, and find the adorable baby griffin hiding on each delightful page!
