What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

Magical illustrations accompany this introduction to mythical creatures sure to delight fantasy fans young and old.

In the style of popular counting rhyme Over in the Meadow, Over in the Woodland takes readers on a journey from one to ten in a mythical woodland setting, showcasing creatures such as griffins, cyclops, mermaids, trolls, dwarves, fairies and more. At the rhyme’s conclusion, there is a two page spread giving some additional detail on each of the ten mythical species included to acquaint readers with some their primary characteristics. The Abreu sisters’ adaptation is pleasant and reads easily in the familiar cadence without feeling painfully forced to a mold. The dramatic style of Covelli’s illustrations has a rich and lush feel—complete with soft lighting and deep colors—and pairs perfectly with the mythical theme. The departure from classic children’s book depictions of the more commonly seen mythical creatures such as dragons and mermaids is notable and gives the reader the sense of truly being introduced to the mythical world.
