Goblinproofing One's Chicken Coop is a fun read about serious defense against the fairy realm with considerable wit and humor. Friends and enemies of the fairy kingdom will find amusement in this book, and perhaps a trick or two to use in dealing with fairies.
As a fond lover of the fairy realm, I don't exactly like the antics of capturing and getting rid of the fairies, but I do agree there are some that should not be allowed to run around in one's home or chicken coop. I certainly wouldn't want to eat an egg from a chicken that was actually a goblin, would you?
Overall, I found this book to be very witty, and written very well. I liked it, and I think if you also enjoy fairy stories, or perhaps have a hidden evil fairy in your house you want to get rid of, you'd like it, too.

Well take a deep breath because "Goblinproofing One's Chicken Coop: And Other Practical Advice In Our Campaign Against The Fairy Kingdom" is here!
Mr. Reginald Bakeley, who has spend years devoting himself to the protection of his garden and lands, and to provide "public awareness and fairy population management", now presents to the world a collection of his writings on how to best rid yourself of the pests of the Fairy Kingdom. Or, if at all possible, how to make use of these beings to enrich your garden or homestead.
I personally found this book to be a very delightful read , a perfect blending of a serious tone and wit and humor, and one that I highly recommend to all, although I will add that any parents reading this book to their children might want to consider substituting a more child appropriate beverage for the Absinthe in the "Absinthe and the Second Sight" section of the book.
And I do feel that I would be remiss if I did not mention that Mr. Bakeley is also asking that anyone who has photographic evidence of goblins mucking about with hen houses, or I would imagine any helpful, or less then helpful photos of the Fairy Kingdom for that matter, to contact him on a website he has set up for showcasing such evidence at goblinproofing dotcom

Unlike the previous reviewers I found little whimsy in this small book although the author is undoubtedly well-acquainted with the fey via alcohol. Read morePublished on March 15, 2014 by Athena PN
I got this for a friend who recently started raising chickens.
It's not about chickens. But it is really funny.
