The Secret History of Hobgoblins by Professor Ari Berk - ADVISABLE

Berk, Ari The Secret History of Hobgoblins 48 pgs. Candlewick, 2012. $10.97.  (Rating: G)

A new addition to this collection of lore books by the Order of the Golden Quills, in this one we find out all about HobgoBlins. They have a unique relationship with humans as keepers of the home. When humans break the laws of hospitality, a Hobgoblin may play a mean prank or even turn into something worse -permanently. Every possibility and variety of hobgoblin is detailed.

I think students will like this book for the same reason I do. Variety. The text, the textures, and the subject matter is presented in so many interesting and creative ways that it like a mini treasure hunt. Fascinating! Ok, everyone like the supernatural component too!
