    One thought on “Goblins! A Survival Guide and Fiasco in Four Parts”

    1. Insipid. This is one of those books that makes me ask, yet again, why do publishers waste ink on this shite, and why did the authors waste their time on it? The text here was of a pretty decent length, with an absurd amount of detail, and said almost nothing. Some of it wasn't even cogent (don't get me started on the 'astrological' 'insights' in the captions under the first few drawings.) If the writers had really wanted to make this book interesting, even charming, they could have. Instead, the [...]

    2. I really love this book from Brian Froud! It really is quite a humorous book about goblins! I really enjoy Brian’s British wit and writing style and being married to a British man, I completely understand and appreciate his sense of humor. When my son was in middle school he just loved this book! He used to always look through this book and ask me all the time to sketch him the goblins from the book for his book covers for school. Soon I found myself sketching out quite a few of the goblins fo [...]

    3. This is basically an outlet to collect some of Brian Froud's drawings of Goblins. He was a creature designer in Labyrinth, and the style is very evident in his drawings here. Around the illustrations is a collection of anecdotes and notes about Goblin life. They're interesting, but they're not very comprehensive or coherent - lots of bits and pieces but they didn't paint a full picture. And there's a lot of fascination with farting. Some of it is silly and funny, but for the most part it seems l [...]

    4. Gorgeous, imaginative art, as I've come to expect from Brian Froud! The descriptions of the various creatures depicted are creatively written, with wonderful little comments by goblins thrown in throughout. A great book of art for adults to enjoy, and I know when I was a child I would have absolutely adored the interactive nature of it (a letter in the back, notes from the authours on the dangers of their work with goblins, comments from a goblin being held captive in the closet, etc.)Recommende [...]

    5. Berk and Froud attempt to translate the Codex Goblinensis, but find themselves wishing they left the subject alone. They had "help" from the goblin Gargle and Froud's camera. Froud actually altered the camera used by Euphemia Cottington to take her famous faery photos. This book was creative and fun, but not my favorite of Brian Froud's. At times it was slow, and a bit of a mess in the details, but overall enjoyable.

    6. Yes this is a little bit silly in places, but Brian Froud's books are always full of silly, pointless fun. The artwork as always is lovely, although my one complaint would be that there weren't enough pictures of Goblins for my liking! If you love the Goblins in the movie Labyrinth like I do or any of the Pressed Fairy Books (Lady Cottington gets a mention) then you'd love this book - in particular the bits where a Goblin has added his own contributions to the book.

    7. Why, yes, I am a sucker for anything by Froud. Have I ever mentioned that I named my only child after a Henson/Froud creation? Yeah, so naturally, I loved it! I have almost all of his books, and no, I won't share them. My daughter would kill me in my sleep if I did. So I won't risk it. Get yer own.

    8. I own Froud’s “Good Fairies/Bad Fairies” book and it is enchanting. So when I saw this one I was prepared for more of the same. Unfortunately, this pseudo-scientific thesis is not nearly as charming. Froud and Berk must have knocked themselves out trying to come up with so much exhaustively detailed information.

    9. Do not drink anything while reading this book or you will have a serious mess on your hands which will actually delight the Goblins. Wickedly clever and funny book. For more about an astounding storyteller, visit ariberk/

    10. One of the highlight's in Brian Fround's career, "Globins!" is a delighful book, a mischiveous guide through the society of the less savoury of the fairy-folk. "Pretty goblins" indeed a treat to the eye (and many other senses thought not always in the most pleasant of ways).

    11. Basically, it's a kids book for kids with quite vague imaginations. The information was fairly insipid, and most of it was pretty whacky stuff your kid might like after some smarties, but the drawings were what I got the book for. I could look at goblins all day.

    12. A funny,well drawn,well written book.I loved the notes from the goblins and all the little things there are to pick up on!A awesome book if your looking for a break from a bout of long or depressing books!:)

    13. I'm a sucker for anything he draws or contributes to. This is fairly expensive, but had to have it to look at whenever I wanted!

    14. Amusing and lovely, like most Froud!Things. I love getting to own books like this. The art is gorgeous and the universe of the Goblins and the Author & Artist.

    15. Not so much a book for reading as for enjoying the images and art. So I feel like I am cheating when I say I 'read' it.

    16. I loved this book! I always enjoy Brian Froud's art, but his book is not only good art; this book is a really funny one! I really enjoyed the "pretty goblins"
