"Lurking in the swampland
lanterns glowing like the sun
sits a massive mama globster
with her bitty globby one."
Gliding through the moonlight
come the monsters big and small,
sliding up your stairway
and oozing down your hall.
They aren’t very scary,
in fact they’re rather sweet.
So snuggle into bed and let them whisper,
“Trick or treat!”
Ghastly ghouls count down to Halloween in this not-so-terrifying bedtime tale.
Illustrated by Ella Okstad.

PRAISE FOR HALLOWEEN GOOD NIGHT
"Grabill makes an oft-adapted rhyme feel utterly fresh [...]. Okstad’s scraggily rendered monsters are pink cheeked and cuddle worthy—the book captures the mischievous fun of Halloween, without the accompanying terror."
"A fun storytime read-aloud that’s just right for the youngest Halloween revelers." –Luann Toth
