EVER SEEN A GOBLIN?
WHAT WOULD HE LOOK LIKE?

There were plenty of ideas at Waterstones, Ringwood, where a group of children met for a workshop with Celia Leofsy

author of The Company of Goblins 

Children listening

 

 

Arthur mimics his sly goblin

Arthur thought he would be sly

Here are the goblins, good and bad, as imagined by the children

… SHARP TEETH

with many legs

… wielding a weapon

Matilda drawing

Matilda’s goblin wielded a sharp axe

Stanley drawing

Stanley’s goblin had sharp features and teeth

The goblins in Celia’s book are the same as those in Nordic legend and Anglo-Saxon Mythology, but they have changed with the times, and hiding behind video conferencing and electronic communication, they’ve taken over a major company and through it they plan to change the world.

How do we know whether for good or evil?

This is the question that faces Izzy and her cat, Orlando.

 

Tiger drawing

Tiger drew a mythical lion with a pig’s nose and unicorn’s horn

and Summer drew Orlando.Tiger's cat

Summer & Jude drawing

Summer’s goblin had pointed ears and Jude drew a cat in a lifebelt – a warning against dangerous deep water?
