"Matthue Roth continues to astound with his brilliance and novelty. Everything he touches turns to mystical and delightful artistic gold. Fearless, funny, and fantastically fantastical." -- Mayim Bialik, Ph.D., actress, The Big Bang Theory
About the Author
The illustrations of Rohan Daniel Eason are dark and beautiful, his work on “My First Kafka” being likened to Edmund Gorey and Maurice Sendak. He was shortlisted for the AOI Illustration awards 2013, and runner up in the award for best book illustration, for a piece in “Tancredi” a novel by James Palumbo. His work has recently received broad praise after he illustrated bestselling author, Kate Mosse's 2013 release, “The Mistletoe Bride.”

My 4yo son found the gobblings a little frightening. That said, it sparked some good conversation as we too have recently moved. I'd recommend this book for not-so-sensitive preschoolers through 7 or 8 year olds. The illustrations are wonderful.
The Gobblings is Firefly for kids; it might not be for everyone but if you are an imaginative and adventure loving kid of any age, the thing you'll hate most about this book is that it ends.
I read The Gobblings to my daughter, and she was transported as I've never seen a child be transported. The next day, she demanded that we read the book again before bed.
I think this ability to bring children, as young as toddlers, into a totally fantastical work, takes a lot of creativity and ingenuity.
In my mind, this is a great book to prepare children for books like "A Wrinkle In Time".
The artwork is awesome, and would stand alone as art to be explored, a rarity for a children's book.
Reminiscent of Roald Dahl's 'The Witches', the words took my mind to another place. And the detailed, vibrant, illustrations caused me to study the pages and absolutely blew me away.
The Gobblings is definitely a tale that feeds the imagination and puts the power where it should be: with the children. I can't wait to read more from this author.
Or great for any child who loves adventures, especially of the rocket and robot kind!

The Gobblings was an interesting picture book. It was kind of strange, but not in a bad way. It wasn't your typical picture book with adorable characters and a funny story. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Dena
