Goblin Secrets
Signed by the author on the title page. Ages 8 and up. In the town of Zombay, a witch named Graba takes in stray children. Rownie is the youngest boy in her household; his only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But in Zombay, humans are forbidden to wear masks, perform plays, or pretend to be other than what they are. Rowan disappeared when the Mayor's Guard raided an illegal play. 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 welcome Rownie; they also want to find Rowan, who might be the only person who can stop the mighty River from flooding the town.
