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.

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.
