Earthy, enigmatic, and--until now--elusive, the goblin is little known and even less well understood. Thanks to Brian Froud's discovery of the notebooks of Dashe, a goblin portraitist, this rare breed is now an open book. This is a definitive, profusely illustrated field guide to the goblin world, annotated by Terry Jones, Monty Python professor emeritus of Obscure, Absurd and Truly Hilarious Arts. Full-color illustrations.

As a young girl growing up as an only child I spent much time reading & watching Movies. But THE most watched movie of my life is without a doubt Labrynth. I have easily seen it over 2000 times. As an adult I have tried to collect as much as I can that is related to the movie. When I saw this book I curiously picked it up for the cover reminded me of the oh so familliar goblins of the Labrynth. And when I leafed through it I was awestruck. It is one of my most treasured items in my collection. I have both the small & large hard cover books. I origionally thought that the book was written after the movie but recently found that Brian had this collection of goblins drawn out well before the movie was filmed and when they were trying to decide what goblins to make for the movie they had used the Goblin Compainion as it is now called to find thier wonderful creatures.
This is a good book for Goblins lover. The only weak point is that there's not enough pictures inside, but overall, it's entertaining and the illustration are really inspiring. The stories are good and amusing.
awsome pictures and storys
