Richard Elliott

Richard told the story of the mysterious goblin to his own children growing up. Inspired by the tiny door the children pointed out on weekend walks around the village. In collaboration with the artist, Grace, they embarked on an homage to the beautiful Oxenhope, with notorious features of the village appearing throughout the book. Having recently become a foster carer, Richard also felt inspired to tell a story of inclusivity and added a dimension to George to show that although everyone is different, no one need be without friends.


  • The Goblin of Oxenhope


    In a beautiful part of Yorkshire... four children go on an adventure through the idyllic village of Oxenhope, but all is not as it seems as they stray further and further from the railway station.
