By David Melling
A fantastic new series written and illustrated by the bestselling David Melling.
Beware - there are goblins living among us! Within these pages lies a glimpse into their secret world. But read quickly, and speak softly, in case the goblins spot you...
When tree goblins Butterfingers and Mildew lose their egglets, they must enlist the help of Two-Conks the tree and fellow goblin Drip, the inventor of Sock-Sucking. Can the gang find the baby egglets before a snootle-pig does?
A riotous, laugh-out-loud funny series for younger readers from the bestselling author of Hugless Douglas, David Melling.

One of his most popular picture books The Tale of Jack Frost was animated and shown on BBC1 on Christmas Day.
