The spooky but utterly fun story is an adaptation of an old nursery rhyme I used to sing in nursery school called Over in the Meadow (Over in the meadow in a hole in the tree, lived an old mother bluebird and her little birdies three . . .) only this time, it’s about werewolves and mummies and spiders and singing skeletons. All of whom have a brood of baby werewolves and mummies and spiders and singing skeletons.
