Goblinproofing One’s Chicken Coop Wins Oddest Book Title of the Year


Bookseller has announced that Goblinproofing One’s Chicken Coop by Reginald Bakeley has won the Diagram Prize for oddest book title of the year. It is described as the “only complete manual on how to identify, track, defend against, and destroy bothersome and scheming brownies, goblins, dwarfs, flower-fairies, and other nasty members of the fairy realm.” The book’s editor Clint Marsh accepted the award and is quoted as saying, “The Diagram Prize celebrates the playfulness that is at the heart of much of the world’s best book publishing. Reginald and I take this as a clear sign that people have had enough of goblins in their chicken coops. Our campaign against the fairy kingdom continues.” It is available to purchase at Wonderella Printed. As a longtime fan of Wonderella publications, I’d like to extend a hearty congratulations!

Help is on the way! In the tradition of Lemony Snicket and Roald Dahl, Goblinproofing One’s Chicken Coop shows how to banish those pesky dark Fairy creatures who are ready to thwart every last pleasure, be it gardening, country hikes, or even getting a good night’s sleep.

In this charming guide, “fairy hunter” Reginald Bakeley offers practical instructions to clear your home and garden of these unsettling inhabitants, and banish them from your chicken coop and kitchen cupboard forever!
