#Review of Brian Froud's Goblins 10 1/2 Anniversary Edition by Brian Froud, Ari Berk

If you brought home the first edition, you were in big trouble! If you bring home this new and expanded edition, you are in even deeper trouble! Renowned artist Brian Froud and scholar Ari Berk have continued their exploration of the goblin realm. (For the uninformed, goblins are those maleficent creatures who cause all manner of havoc in the human realm.) Now, thanks largely to Froud’s and Berk’s continuing carelessness, the viscid and largely nonsensical NEW volume has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public. Among its pages are new letters of apologies and disclaimers complete with new art; a list of Gargle’s new titles, grants, entitlements, and responsibilities; and, sadly, much more! Also included is an envelope containing a new talisman that is guaranteed to ward off goblins.
 About the Author

I have been a fan of Froud's books since I picked a copy of Bag Fairies Good Fairies.  If I had a house I would be tossing pictures up everywhere. 

And just so you know this isn't just a rerelease of the same book. There are many new things. And I just love the thing in the back!  (you will have to look at the book for that one) 

This is a great little book of all things Goblins!
