Editorial Reviews

Walter Zimmerman delivers a stately interpretation of "The Story of the Goblins Who Stole a Sexton". This amusing supernatural tale by Victorian writer Charles Dickens is in the tradition of A Christmas Carol. Zimmerman’s clear, dulcet voice brings to life the morose and surly title character, Gabriel Grub. One Christmas Eve, while digging a grave instead of making merry, Grub is visited by a group of well-meaning goblins. The goblins kidnap him in order to show him how life should be best lived.

Publisher's Summary

Charles Dickens, like many Victorian writers, loved to write supernatural stories during the Christmas season. The most famous, of course, is A Christmas Carol, but there were many other such stories including, Number One Branch Line: The Signalman, The Trial for Murder, and The Story of the Goblins Who Stole a Sexton. This particular story has many parallels to A Christmas Carol but also has many unique feathers.
