Goblins? Where’s the proof?
Poppy Malone wasn’t the kind of girl who saw goblins. That was what made the whole thing so strange. If it had been anyone else in her family—her parents or Will or Franny or even Rolly, who was only five—it would have made much more sense.
But they didn’t go into the attic on that hot June afternoon, and Poppy did. And that made all the difference.
