IMELDA AND THE GOBLIN KING
Written and illustrated by Briony May Smith
Published by Flying Eye
From our review:
“There is nothing about this book I dislike… Smith packs so much wonderful detail into every spread, it’s almost overwhelming. Hours could be spend poring over each page, examining every fairy and creature. Indeed, my daughter and I have spent a good amount of time choosing our favorite characters on each page, and then our favorite for the whole book. (We agreed on the fairy riding the rabbit…)
Briony May Smith is a major talent, and Imelda and the Goblin King is a clear statement of intent from an author-illustrator from whom I eagerly await more.
A serious contender for Best Book of the Year.”
