Young Edward lives with his mother in a little cottage at the edge of a town called âPigboneâ. When the long vacant cottage next door becomes occupied, lonely Edward is thrilled to learn his new neighbor Moongobble is a magician in training. Edward becomes Moongobbleâs apprentice, and joins him on a quest to find the dreaded dragon of Doom.
Unless you have a strong dislike of fantasy or fairy tales, there is nothing objectionable in this book. Edward is adorable, Moongobble is loveable, the story is entertaining, and the illustrations (done by Katherine Coville) are too cute. The Moongobble series continues with: The Weeping Werewolf, The Evil Elves, and The Mischief Monster.
