What is a boy to think when a mischievous, spidery-legged, knobbly-kneed goblin shows up in his front yard? Full of curiosity, the young boy follows his strange new goblin friend a she squishes and squashes things, creeping and crawling through the house in search of something to eat.

Children will delight in repeating the goblin's answers to the boy's questions. "Why have you got such a grumbly tum?" "Hungry! Hungry! Hungry!" And they'll get a kick out of the playful "gotcha" ending. Be prepared to read this story again and again and make sure you have plenty of jellybeans on hand!

Malachy Doyle's bouncing, rhythmic text with its irresistible refrain joins forces with Paul Hess's wildly exuberant illustrations to create a jolly romp of a picture book that is perfect for reading aloud.
