AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"Something is coming. Can you see? It snuffles and gruffles. What can it be? Look! Look! It's a Gobbledygook! It's ripping up pages and eating a book!" A rollicking tale, full of irresistible rhyme and song-like rhythm, of a little girl who takes on the task of introducing a slightly out-of-control monster to the joys of reading (Libraries Australia).
