For fans of Liesl Shurtliff and Jessica Day George comes a heartwarming story about a mysterious egg that hatches a very big, very LOUD creature and the brave little girl who must return the infant to its rightful home.

The quiet town of Broomsweep has just started to adjust to the dragon, pixies, and gryphon who decided to call Ivy's cottage home when a farmer proposes an unusual trade. In exchange for curing his goat of a bellyache, the farmer will give Ivy and her grandmother a mysterious egg. When the egg hatches to reveal a baby goblin, the creature creates such mayhem, even Grandmother doesn't know what to do. It's up to Ivy and a few of her magical friends to brave a dark forest and find the goblin's family. There's just one problem: Goblins can't STAND humans! Will Ivy's daring misson succeed?
