    GINNY GOBLIN IS NOT ALLOWED TO OPEN THIS BOX is the story of . . . well, there’s a box, and Ginny Goblin is not allowed to open it. But oh, how she will try!  Ninja suits, catapults, scaly serpents, motorcycles—Ginny will stop at nothing and she’ll make readers giggle and cheer from beginning to end.  

      

    Ginny Goblin has one simple rule to follow: She is not allowed to open this box. Not until dinnertime.   

      

    But Ginny Goblin doesn't like to follow the rules, so nothing will stop her from trying to open this box. Not a tall tower, not a misty mountain, not a frightful forest, and certainly not a murky moat filled with scaly, scary serpents . . .   

      

    But wait! What is in the box? You'll have to open this book to find out! (Don't worry, you're allowed.)

    "A funny read-aloud with (mostly) chuckle-inducing illustrations."--Kirkus 

     

    "Never fear—readers do get to find out what’s in the box (“Now I’m really curious about what’s inside!” the narrator confesses), but the joy is all in the getting there."--Publishers Weekly 

     

    "Readers will completely identify with the overly invested narrator.... Hilarious text matches perfectly with the spare yet spot-on illustrations as an adorable and persistent goblin works hard to satisfy her curiosity."--School Library Journal 

     

    "Curiosity breeds ingenuity in this humorous story about a goblin determined to find out what’s inside a deep, round spangly box. "--Booklist
