Goblin, a cheerful little homebody, lives in a cosy, rat-infested dungeon, with his only friend, Skeleton. Every day, Goblin and Skeleton play with the treasure in their dungeon. But one day, a gang of "heroic" adventurers bursts in. These marauders trash the place, steal all the treasure, and make off with Skeleton-leaving Goblin all alone! It's up to Goblin to save the day. But first he's going to have to leave the dungeon and find out how the rest of the world feels about goblins."--Amazon.com.

DnD fans will get a kick out of this adorable kids book submitted by eileenw on November 12, 2016, 10:23am If you play DnD, Pathfinder, or other RPG games, you'll recognize the milieu immediately of Goblin and Skeleton's home cave/crisis. This adorable book for your kids gives a nod to your gameplay as well as your kid's storytelling sensibilities.

Cute Story with Great Illustrations submitted by cmegane on June 27, 2017, 7:35am A cute and simple story of a goblin and skeleton friendship. The illustrations are what really wow, though.

I LIKE A GOBLIN submitted by Sara W on July 10, 2017, 8:13pm This is a major favorite in our house. Five stars, for sure. It's got that perfect blend of silly, adventure, suspense, and best of all, a happy ending. The friendship of Goblin and Skeleton is great - the adventurers are great villains because they are interesting to study but not at all scary. It's amazing how invested you get in Goblin so quickly. The art is incredible - the detail, the creativity, the colors, the whole feel is just perfection. Ben Hatke is amazing.

Absolutely Delightful submitted by Meginator on August 6, 2017, 4:58pm This book is amazing and will enchant readers of all ages. The story is funny and heartwarming all on its own, and the illustrations are phenomenal. Hatke utilizes different layouts, too, inspired from comics, and the results are wonderful. This one is a keeper and has a nice, timeless quality about it.
