Fleshtoad looked at the yellow cat that walked across the road. The Goblin smiled, revealing teeth from a dead weazel he'd found once.
The cat did not seem to notice the Goblin who approached it from behind. But suddenly, it looked down the road and then quickly ran over. Fleshtoad looked where the cat had stood. He wondered what could have scared off his meal, when suddenly striked by a car.
When Fleshtoad woke up, he stared up at the sky. The outer corners of his eyes were dim and black. A horrible pain in the head threatened to make the Goblin swoon again.

As I have already mentioned, I'm Swedish, and before I only had the Chronicles and the Field Guide in Swedish.

YES!!! It's finally here! Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You in English original! I am Swedish, so before, i only had the Swedish, translated version of the book. This mess things up more than you might think. You see, the faeries have a bit peculiar names: Thimbletack, Leatherleaf and things like that. And the Swedish translator, named Carla Wiberg, have given them quite different names. Here's a list of examples.
- Thimbletack - Tråckeltum
- Hogsqueal - Pipgrisen
- Teaberry - Olvon
- Toadshade - Paddskym
- Lickspittle - Snyltmes
So, now when it's finally here, I'm off to editing.Read more >
