Description

A picture book ode to Christina Rossetti's classic poem and a clever homage to familiar fairy-tale villains, this story about two sisters will enthrall readers with its beautifully detailed art and enchanting writing.

Millie loves her quiet life on the farm, but Mina longs for adventure.

When the Goblin Market comes to town, Millie knows it's a bad idea. They've been told stories their whole lives about the dangers of the Goblin Market. But Mina just can't resist . . . 

When Mina doesn't come back, it's Millie's turn to brave the market to bring her home. She will use all her smarts and all her courage to try to outwit the goblins and save her sister . . . but will it be enough?

This gorgeous and intriguing tribute to both "Goblin Market" by Christina Rossetti and classic fairy-tale villains is also a story about the bond between sisters and a celebration of courage, intelligence and resilience.

I have always loved Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market poem, which is not surprising since I am, in general, a fan of fairy tales. So I was happy to be given an ebook copy of the book by NetGalley to review. And I was not disappointed. The art is fabulous. Illustrator Jensine Eckwall created black and white pictures with a few items highlighted in red. The illustrations are reminiscent of those in old books, published when the cost of color printing made for very limited pallettes. The style is suggestive of an old wood cut but more detailed. Author Vikki VanSickle has done a lovely job of re-spinning the story for young readers. I am sold. I need my own paper and ink copy. I hope you will give this book a try, too.

WE ADORED THIS BOOK. A little spooky but super cute. Perfect for fans of The Nightmare Before Christmas. The illustrations were wicked fun.
