Full of beautiful illustrations and fantastical, wry humor, this story is Monty Python and the Holy Grail for a new generation. When Brangwain Spurge, an elf and historian, is catapulted into goblin territory as part of a goodwill mission, shenanigans ensue. A thoughtful social commentary on the role of bias and perception in the telling of historical events, imbued with imagination and lore, this book is for anyone who enjoys sharp jokes and an escape into an expertly-crafted world of fantasy.
