About the Author
Wil Radcliffe was apparently born. He has spent most of his life breathing, and sometimes writing. Lately he's been hoping people will read his books and like them enough that they'll reward him with pizza.

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.
