Davy and the Goblin

Davy and the Goblin, or What Followed Reading “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Charles E. Carryl.

Illustrated by Edmund Birckhead Bensell: frontispiece, 13 full page black and whites and other b&w in the text.

Published by Frederick Warne, 1886. First UK edition (published 1884 in the US).

Davy is reading Alice next to the fire when he gets sleepy. A Goblin appears in the fire, munching coals, and takes Davy on a “believing voyage” to the Sugar Plum Garden where he meets Robin Hood, Robinson Crusoe and Sinbad.

Edmund Birckhead Bensell (1842 – 1894) was an American artist and illustrator. Charles Edward Carryl (1841 – 1920) was an American author of children’s literature.

Apparently (so I’m told, anyway), the UK edition is pretty rare- with even the British Library having only the US one..

Available on Amazon- both in the original and as modern paperback: Davy and the Goblin
