The main star is a Goblin named Bugbear, and his "Illogical Thought" precepts will keep you chuckling. Manchester and Maga are back; so is Riley Ratcatcher. The Ogres play a smaller role, and there are a whole bunch of human and elves ("Aes dana") to get to know. Then there's a way-kewl patchwork creature - part lion, part elephant - named Tembo, who you'll warm to immediately. Finally, if you're a Teddy Roosevelt fan, you're gonna love this.
Beyond the entertainment, the book has a serious message about prejudice - both of species and of cosmetic appearance. The ending is satisfying, and the Ultimate Evil is not totally vanquished (indeed, it's not even identified yet), which points to a sequel. That's something to look forward to.
4½ Stars, but read Noggle Stones Book 1 first. Both books are fun reads for YA's and adults alike.
