Description

Gibblewort is a nasty little Irish goblin. One day he gets sick of the rain and damp of his homeland and decides to go to Australia instead. At first, he's delighted with his new home, which is as sunny and dry as any goblin could hope for. But when he gets to know the local flora and fauna, he gets more than he bargains for and makes a hasty retreat back to Ireland where he feels safe and secure. The other goblins aren't pleased to see him back and when gets really nasty, threaten to send him back to Oz.
