When Ogie the goblin's blanket goes missing, he and his cat Gerald hunt high and low through the magical and mysterious places on the island of Goblinia. Does Grandad have it in the snowpark? Is it in the Slimewoods? Or caught in the Singing Stones?

The Goblin's Blue Blanket by author and illustrator Kieron Black follows Ogie and Gerald on their adventure through the goblin world in this fantastic story about why there is nothing you need so much as friends and family.

Kieron Black is an artist, writer, husband, father, surfer, snowboarder and skateboarder, although not necessarily in that order. As a successful landscape painter, specialising mostly in mountains, he has exhibited across the UK, Europe and New York. He has also illustrated several children’s books including Boo!!! Said the Banshee at home in Ireland and is currently wrestling with the umpteenth draft of a full-length novel, though the almost constant ‘surf breaks’ seem to be impeding this somewhat. The Goblin’s Blue Blanket is his first self-penned children’s book. Kieron lives by the beach in Northern Ireland with his wife and daughter and a collection of annoying, furry creatures that eat everything and put paw prints all over his artwork.

'Lots of kids can relate to the basic idea of losing a favourite blanket or something else precious. It ruins Ogie’s day and at the end of the story there’s a good message for children to not worry about things like this, that they don’t have to let small things like this ruin their whole day. It’s a message I can remember needing when I was young. The last two pages of the book are very funny and I love what’s revealed and what happens to the character.'
