One of the best and most enchanting stories/chapters in my opinion is 'The little Princess' which is delightful in its story-telling.
In another; two Knights compete for the hand of a lady who spends her days alone shut up in a Tower in the middle of a lonely Forest with only an old maid and 'Gobbolino' for company! I could read this story over and over again...
Enchanting illustrations done in the old style accompany these enthralling adventures in the 'Kingfisher Classics' Edition. Each chapter encompasses a different temporary home little Gobbolino manages to find; featuring Witches, Princesses, Punch and Judy, and other animals - there's even a 'Hobgoblin'!
'Gobbolino The Woodcutter' is also another of my favourites, as I love any story with a Witch - and the more wicked the better!!
ADVENTURE HIGHLIGHTS; 'Hobgoblin', 'The Little Princess', 'Punch And Judy', 'Gobbolino In The Tower' and 'Gobbolino The Woodcutter'.
I think in my early twenties I had lent this book to a friend and it never found its way home (I just hope whoever it was I lent it to enjoyed it as much as me! :) )
I'm glad I have found it again and will need to buy a replacement. Pity it's not on Kindle though as I'm trying to reduce shelf space!
Highly recommend this book, especially if you have children to read it too as it will become part of their cherished memories.
