From the renowned author of Here Lies Arthur and No Such Thing As Dragons, the adventures of a goblin outcast who must save his world from the rise of a dangerous dark magic...

Welcome to a wild world of magical creatures and heroic adventure!

The squabbling goblins that live in the great towers of Clovenstone spend their time fighting and looting. Only clever young Skarper (who happens to be in exile) understands that dark magic created by a vanquished sorcerer is rising again. With the help of a wannabe-hero, a middle-aged princess, and a few bumbling wizards, Skarper must fight to save their world.

Praise For Goblins

Praise for Goblins:

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012
“You know you are in the hands of a master storyteller when a dangerous yet frivolous fantasy world is brought to life with such imagination that it not only entertains and amuses -- it actually seems real and makes its own curious sense... Goblins is an utterly charming delight and children will love it.”
