Imelda & the Goblin King

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Imelda loved her visits to the enchanted wood to play with the fairies and their queen. But one day, the grumpy, greedy goblin king arrived. When the fairies invited him to their feast, he ate the lot and imprisoned the queen.

Imelda baked a magical pie for the goblin king. If he agreed to share it, she would give him the half filled with blueberries. But if he ate the lot, something terrible would happen...

Rooted in classic fairy tales, and accompanied by dazzling illustrations, this story shows how kindness and generosity win out against greed and selfishness.
