Jeffrey Siebert Reads
The Library’s own Jeffrey Siebert reads Nobody Likes a Goblin by Ben Hatke and Possum Magic by Mem Fox.
Hatke chronicles the hijinx of Goblin, a cheerful little homebody, who 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.—via Google Books
Possum Magic is a picture book by Australian author Mem Fox. The two main characters are Grandma Poss and Hush. Hush has been made invisible by Grandma to protect her from Australian bush dangers. The story details the duo’s adventures as they tour Australia searching for the secret to Hush’s visibility. It is a rhythmical story of Australia’s varied landscapes and the animals in them. —via Wikipedia
