Halloween Monstermania - A Glossary of Monsters


Hi folks:

In honor of the month of October I am planning to post a glossary of monsters that can be used in children's Halloween picture books and poems. Every day I will post two monsters and their definition/description.

  • Goblin - a mischievous, annoying creature, described as grotesquely evil. Their favorite past time is to annoy your pets. Some soak their hats in blood. These are called REDCAPS and should be avoided at all costs.
