Sprout is a goblin. A young goblin. Young goblins often get into scrapes. That’s probably all you need to know, because who doesn’t like to read about others getting out of tricky situations, especially when they’re goblins?
When Sprout witnesses a Biglander stealing his ma’s ring, at a time when he should’ve been looking after it, he knows he has to get it back. Aided by his uncle Long Tooth, he makes a plan. Even though this task will take him out of The Forest of the Hooting Owl, a place that only forest dwellers know is there, because it is hidden behind a veil of magic, he is determined to succeed. He has to get into the Biglander’s house and retrieve the ring. His ma’s happiness depends upon him.
How many attempts will it take to locate the ring and escape with it? Is it even possible to do? And what is the truth about the Biglander who managed to get into the forest?
Sprout’s waiting for you right now. Why not join him on his adventures today?
The Goblin and the Stolen Ring is a 15,000 word chapter book for children aged 8-12 and anyone else who is young of heart.
