This is a well written children's book that explains slavery in a way they can understand. As an adult I found it an enjoyable read. When I read it to a friends grandson, he asked me to read it again....and again. Now he is asking his mom to buy a copy so he an read it whenever he wants.
This is a fun short story about a very tall, very.....un-pretty school girl and a short, skinny, rubber-faced goblin. The goblin falls in love with the poor girl, who wants nothing to do with him.
I found the book very well written and can't wait for another installment. Please tell me there will be more stories!
The short, choppy sentences distracted me from really enjoying the book. People in the stories were only identified by initials, making it seem more like fiction than true story. That said, the stories were interesting and inspiring and I would like to read another book by this author.
The only think wrong with this short story is that it is a short story! I would love to see the authors write a full novel about Lily, Gobher, and the rest of Gobher's goblin family. The author is witty and her short stories at fun to read. While these shorts are aimed at juvenile and young adult readers, adults will find them entertaining as well.
