We're Going on a Goon Hunt (Hardcover)
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.
About the Author
Michael Rex has written and illustrated over 40 books for children, including the gruesomely hysterical, #1 New York Times bestseller Goodnight Goon. His popular sword-swinging Fangbone! graphic novels have been turned into an animated show that runs on Disney XD in the U.S., and many other markets worldwide. He visits schools across the country and internationally to share his books with students of all ages, and he has a master's degree in Arts Education. His work covers a wide range of styles, from the simple, goofy rhymes of Truck Duck, to the heavily illustrated, yuck-filled Icky Ricky chapter books.

A fantastic exploration of creativity through a blossoming friendship! Imagination and fun are limitless in this story of a young girl and a panda as they obey the rules of art; which is that there are no rules in art! - Review by Jessica
