Welcome to Goblinville!
Come along with some real-life goblins as they visit their hometown for Halloween! They should be excited and happy, but the goblins are glum. Why? Because they get no respect! Criticized and bullied, they just don’t get it. They are goblins, and good at what they do – and proud of it. But they soon learn that showing up and being true to one’s self is a good thing, on Halloween, and most any other time. And no one is more surprised than the "gob"; themselves, and the kids who come to their Goblinville stores to Trick-or-Treat! P.S. You’re not a scaredy-cat, are you? No? Goooood.
This charming, rhyming, humorous, non-scary story subtly shares important messages on being yourself, anti-bullying, and self-acceptance with candor, humor, and sensitivity. It is a book that young readers will at first feel sorry for the poor goblins, and they will see that anyone can get bullied for being different, even goblins. Don't worry, though, we promise you a story with a happy ending.
Welcome to Goblinville is a fun and silly book for elementary-age readers. This story is brought to life with engaging and enduring images. The illustrations have quirky humor and personality that will delight young readers!
Perfect for Halloween or any time of year and a great read-aloud for teachers!
