Hines presents hysterically funny, witty and surprisingly intuitive writing in this glimpse into the life of a most unusual goblin. Jig is so refreshingly unique that he outshines the other characters, but only barely, since the entire cast is disarmingly and charmingly wonderful. This is a definite must read.
Jig Dragonslayer sounds like the name of a fierce and proud warrior -- surely not that of a goblin? But Jig is a goblin, and a puny one by goblin standards, yet he's somehow become his people's leader. But now he must lead them to war.
Jig leads his friends on raucous adventures and battles while somehow managing not to be thrown by a grumpy, anthropomorphic tree. When captured by humans, he escapes and helps his people fight, ending up pitted against orcs, goblins, hobgoblins
