Nobody likes a goblin, by Ben Hatke
If someone asked you “do you like goblins?”, you’d probably say no, wouldn’t you? Well, if someone showed you this book and asked you “do you like goblins?”, I bet you’d say yes. This book is so many things – funny, sweet, loyal, cute, sad, but happy.
i like the way that the goblin is so loyal to his friend Skeleton, and goes on a quest to get him back. I’d do that for my friends (would you?) and I hope they think so too!
“Nobody likes a goblin,” the little goblin repeats to himself. Well, everybody, it turns out, but Skeleton and . . . other goblins! Goblin shows true friendship to Skeleton, and finally finds his kin in this charming book!
