Product Description

The awakening of ancient sorcery has brought new threats to the goblin stronghold of Clovenstone Keep. Now a sinister network of tunnels is sneaking into the heart of goblin territory. The fearsome dwarves – ruthless, cunning and covered in mole-droppings – have launched an underground invasion. And when the dastardly dwarves and their armoured moles steal the goblins’ magic, Skarper and his pals must fight back! As hapless heroes Skarper and Henwyn try to defend the magic of their castle, there are dark forces that must be vanquished, monstrous creatures to defeat, and astonishing mysteries to be solved… More action-packed drama from one of the masters of children’s fantasy fiction, Philip Reeve.

Praise for Goblins:

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a sequel and hooray for that… An utterly charming delight.” Telegraph

Philip Reeve

Philip Reeve was born and raised in Brighton, where he worked in a bookshop for years while also producing and directing a number of no-budget theatre projects.

Philip then began illustrating and has since provided cartoons and jokes for around forty books, including the best-selling Scholastic series Horrible Histories, as well as Murderous Maths and Dead Famous.

He’s been writing stories since he was five, but Mortal Engines was the first to be published. Mortal Engines defies easy categorisation. It is a gripping adventure story set in an inspired fantasy world, where moving cities trawl the globe. A magical and unique read, it immediately caught the attention of readers and reviewers and won several major awards. Three more Hungry Cities novels followed, and Philip’s latest project are the Fever Crumb books, prequels set centuries before the events of Mortal Engines.

Philip has also written Buster Bayliss, a series for younger readers, and stand alone novels including Here Lies Arthur, which won the Carnegie Medal.

Philip lives in Devon with his wife and son and his interests are walking, drawing, writing and reading.

    Goblins VS Dwarves is...

    ... Is funny, great and interesting to read. My favourite character is Skarper because he’s silly but brave and quick to act. I loved reading this book and I can’t wait for the next adventure!!
