One of my favorite books of the year! Elves and Goblins have been at war for centuries, so Goblin archivist Werfer - who has been studying Elfin culture for years - is honored and anxious to be hosting Elfin diplomat Brangwain Spurge in his home. A series of comedic cultural miscommunications ensue. Told partially in text and partially in pictures - where the text and pictures don't tell exactly the same story! Imaginative, smart, laugh-out-loud funny, you will wish these characters (especially Werfer) were your real-life friends.
