This hilarious companion to the NYT #1 bestseller, Goodnight Goon , is a spooky parody of We're Going on a Bear Hunt .

We're going on a goon hunt.
We're going to catch a green one.
What a spooky night! We're not scared.

A goon hunt is no easy task. A twisted tangled pumpkin patch, murky bubbling swamp, and foggy crumbling graveyard are just a few of the obstacles these kids will have to go through, skulking monsters included. And when the Goon finally makes an appearance--under the covers they go! Except one brave child who finds monsters more fun than scary.

The beloved classic We're Going on a Bear Hunt gets a ghoulish twist in this goon-infused parody that perfectly plays with the rhythm and sound effects of the original. Mike Rex's creepy settings and hilarious text will have kids demanding to giggle and shiver through the story again and again.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Echoing the scheme and cadence of the classic children's song, "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," Rex's latest sassy send-up brings back the title character of his Goodnight Goon, as a costume-clad adult and kids set out to find the amiable green monster on Halloween night. When they can't go over or under a sequence of obstacles (including a "murky, bubbling swamp" and a "foggy, crumbling graveyard"), the adventurers clamber through them--growing increasingly scared--except for one. In a comically ironic twist, the sole intrepid soul is the youngest and most cheerfully clad, decked out in a pink unicorn costume, who is content to engage in a cemetery dance party while the others bolt for home. Sprinkled with lurking monsters to spot, Rex's mixed-media pictures have a timeless feel that renders this tale much more charming than chilling. Ages 3--5. (Aug.)"
