Awesome book cover Friday: Goblin Secrets

Today’s book cover (sorry it’s late!) is Goblin Secrets by William Alexander.

Goblin Secrets

Here’s a description from Amazon:

A boy joins a theatrical troupe of goblins to find his missing brother.

In the town of Zombay, there is a witch named Graba who has clockwork chicken legs and moves her house around—much like the fairy tale figure of Baba Yaga. Graba takes in stray children, and Rownie is the youngest boy in her household. Rownie’s only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But acting is outlawed in Zombay, and Rowan has disappeared.

Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins also want to find Rowan—because Rowan might be the only person who can save the town from being flooded by a mighty river.

This accessible, atmospheric fantasy takes a gentle look at love, loss, and family while delivering a fast-paced adventure that is sure to satisfy.

This one’s rated for ages 8 and up. I love the fullness and range of colors! What do you think of the cover?

Have a great weekend, everyone! I’m rushing out the door soon to visit my boyfriend’s family for the weekend. It was his birthday yesterday, so we celebrated with homemade pumpkin cheesecake, tacos, and movies and TV shows! :)

      Thanks, Sarah! The pumpkin cheesecake was super easy to make and very delicious! Let me know if you want the recipe … although I’m sure you have a good one. :)

    I can’t figure out which is more delightful, the synopsis or the cover. Both seem fantastic. I wouldn’t be surprised if this ended up going home with me during my next visit to the book store…

Tell me something!
