This is my first Brian Froud book, and I love it. Gorgeous drawings throughout. Not fussed about the text so much - not sure who it's aimed at. It's language is way too advanced for small children, and the content is a bit silly/childish for adults. But I just bought it primarily for the artwork, and for that it's amazing. The book also has a nice squishy cover, so it feels really lovely to hold.
I bought this book under the assumption that it was a separate work from the old "The Goblins of Labyrinth" released quite a few years earlier. After all, there is nothing to indicate this is the case anywhere on the cover. Don't be fooled; there is nothing new here.
I am giving this book five stars because it is still after all a fun read and is actually much more nicely packaged than previous incarnations, but it's a shame we've seen it all before.
If, like me, you are a big fan of Labyrinth and want a bigger glimpse into it's world then I highly recommend you buy this book but only if, unlike me, you don't already own "The Goblins of Labyrnith", otherwise you'll just be wasting your money.
Not much to say as I love Froud and Terry Jones but this is a delightful and funny book a must for any of you who love Goblins and have a good sense of silly humour! Perfect to pop in your ruck sack when you go for walks as you never know when you might find a Goblin!!!!
