A boy joins a theatrical troupe of goblins to find his missing brother.In the town of Zombay, there is a witch named Graba who has clockwork chicken legs and moves her house around--much like the fairy tale figure of Baba Yaga. Graba takes in stray children, and Rownie is the youngest boy in her household. Rownie's only real relative is his older brother Rowan, who is an actor. But acting is outlawed in Zombay, and Rowan has disappeared.Desperate to find him, Rownie joins up with a troupe of goblins who skirt the law to put on plays. But their plays are not only for entertainment, and the masks they use are for more than make-believe. The goblins also want to find Rowan--because Rowan might be the only person who can save the town from being flooded by a mighty river.This accessible, atmospheric fantasy takes a gentle look at love, loss, and family while delivering a fast-paced adventure that is sure to satisfy.

I REALLY tried to read and listen to and like this book, but I just never found anything to like. It is a National Book Award winner, so someone must have really liked it. I tried reading the book but put it down after a few chapters. I then tried the audio and after one complete disc (1/4 of the book) I still cannot tell you what was going on. I guess if you are into goblins, magic and steampunk, it may appeal to you, but I just couldn't find anything to keep me reading. And I can't say I was a fan of the author reading his own work.
