Good is a seven-year-old girl who was adopted by absolutely ghastly parents. One night, after wishing on hundreds of shooting stars to become a queen, an elderly ghost appears to grant her wish in the most unexpected way, making her queen of the Goblin Kingdom. Yet what seems like a curse becomes a blessing when she meets seven goblins on their way home. They lead Queen Good to the Goblin Kingdom, until stopped upon discovering that a mysterious enemy has destroyed their homeland completely. Good must now help her fellow goblins discover who their enemy might be, and in doing so she just might discover who her real friends are, and who she really is—good, queenly, and a little gobliny.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
In the great traditions of Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton comes a children’s story full of imagination and laughter but with underlying messages that need to be heard.

This it not the first book by Becket that I have read although the others have definitely been in the more adult genre’s but I was intrigued when I was offered a children’s novel by him and am so glad I accepted.

The storytelling is superb and I will honestly admit not only was I laughing out loud at places, the writing was so delightful I had to share it with my husband. The illustrations scattered through the pages from Raven Quinn just add to the enjoyment.

I think children everywhere would delight in this book!

A easy 5 stars from me! V””V
