From the blurb "Jig is a scrawny little nearsighted goblin - a runt even among his puny species. Captured by a party of adventurers searching for a magical artifact, and forced to guide them, Jig encounters every peril ever faced on a fantasy quest." This book is clean, amusing, adventurous fun! ...

This is a cute story. It focuses on Jig, a runt goblin with a pet spider named Smudge. He's sort of geeky and always having to find his way out of trouble from the other goblins, who are typical fantasy goblins and might well kill him, but it's written in a way that would make it suitable for childr...

This is a hilarious take on typical fantasy goblins, but with a likeable character called Jig who is a runt among goblins and is constantly put upon because of it. He has a pet spider called Smudge who exhibits more personality than some people I know. It feels a lot like something a gamer would h...

Jig is a goblin. That means cannon fodder. That means pest. That means nuisance. It means creature that wandering adventurers repeatedly stamp into the dust on their way to bigger and more dangerous things. Not only that, but Jig is the runt of his people.

A fun look at the Goblin's side of a dungeon crawl. Jig is a runt, but a clever runt and his insights into both the adventurers lives and the lives of monsters are both humourous and heartwarming.

A fun and clever play on the standard fantasy adventure trope. Jig the goblin, cleverer than your average goblin, accidentally falls in with a group of adventurers on a standard-issue fantasy quest. Tongue-in-cheek humor, good action, and a good old-fashioned dungeon-crawl.

It's Jig, not goblin.Actually, it's Jig the goblin in the role of fairy tale Simpleton.I've broken with D&D tradition and rounded up, in case anyone is keeping track, after all one review rounded down.Goblin Quest isn't as polished as Hines' The Stepsister Scheme and it seems that Hines hadn't fully...

A story from the goblin's point of view. Not usually my cup of tea, but it was humorous and I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. I probably will not bother to read the sequels though.
