Beautiful illustrations and rhyming, rhythmic text partner up in this new interpretation of the classic rhyme Over in the Meadow. This is a perfect read-aloud for kids (and adults) to count magical creatures and let imaginations soar!

— Chelsea

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 counting adventure sure to capture the imagination of readers young and old. Based on the classic children's rhyme "Over in the Meadow," this beautiful and  whimsical 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! A fantastic and clever addition to any children's book collection. 

Susanna Covelli was born in a small town in Piedmont, Italy, earned an MA in architecture, and followed her passion for art and decided to attend a specialization course in both traditional and digital illustration at Scuola Iternazionale di Comics in Turin. Her art expresses her own imagination and inspiration from nature, and she has always been attracted by sinuous shapes, Baroque style, and out-of-the-ordinary perspective
