Nobody Likes a Goblin

We rated this book:


It’s a regular day for Goblin and his best friend Skeleton, until a group of adventurers raid the dungeon where they peacefully live! The adventurers take everything—including Skeleton—and it’s up to Goblin to rescue his friend. But it’s true that nobody likes a goblin, and all kinds of people chase Goblin away. It’s only when Goblin finds a whole group of other goblins that they’re able to defeat the adventurers for good!

This fantastic picture book is certain to appeal to readers of all ages! Kids will love Nobody Likes a Goblin because of the clever story featuring an underdog hero who ultimately saves the day, while adults—especially those who are into tabletop gaming—will love it because of its obvious references to a certain dungeon-plundering roleplaying game. Author Ben Hatke does a good job of turning a goblin, usually portrayed as a bad character in most stories, into a hero, and giving readers an idea of what an adventure story might look like from the other side. Ben Hatke’s delightful illustrations really bring this story to life, while his story is funny and cute and so fun that parents and kids alike will want to read it over and over again.
