Counting With Globsters: Halloween Good Night is a Sweet and Not-So-Scary Educational Picture Book

July 25, 2017 Atheneum Books releases Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill of Ada, Michigan

The newly released title Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill teaches number literacy to the preschool set in this imaginative, poetic Halloween tale. 

Grabill makes an oft-adapted rhyme feel utterly fresh, thanks to some excellent vocabulary choices and the funny exchanges between monsters young and old. Okstad’s scraggily rendered monsters are pink cheeked and cuddle worthy—the book captures the mischievous fun of Halloween, without the accompanying terror.” —Starred Review from Publishers Weekly

About the Author: Rebecca Grabill lives and writes in the Michigan wilds with her spouse and five children, two kitties, multiple chickens, and the occasional ghost. Halloween Good Night (Atheneum, ’17) is her first picture book, soon to be followed by Violet and the Woof (Katherine Tegan Books, ’18).

Rhyming text and tender illustrations make a satisfying and surprising story suitable for bedtime. No nightmares allowed in Grabill’s land of globsters and goblins! Many traditional Halloween monsters lurk between the pages—vampires, werewolves, mummies—with a few lesser known, like the mischievous bogart! Added to the Halloween fun, is number literacy as the reader counts from one globster to two wood imps and up to ten then down again as the monsters return to bed.
