We all know how fantasy stories should go, right? The hero slays the dragon, the adventurers loot the goblin hoard, etc. The heroes in these sorts of stories rarely consider the feelings of the dragons, goblins, skeletons, and various other storybook monsters.
This book takes a look at the other side of the story. A kind and friendly goblin (named Goblin) lives happily with his hoard of treasure. All Goblin wants to do is spend time with his best friend Skeleton (who, of course, is a skeleton.) One day, a group of mean and loud adventurers come and steal all of Goblin's belongings, taking Skeleton with them! Goblin has to go on an adventure of his own to rescue Skeleton and get his treasure back. This book is beautifully illustrated and so much fun to read.
