The opening of How the Goblins Turned to Stone:
The monster goblins that used to live in Holland were ugly, short fellows, very smart, quick in action and able to travel far in a second. They had big heads, green eyes and split feet, like cows. They were so ugly that they were ordered to live underground and never come out during the day. If they did, they would be turned to stone. The ruler of the goblins lived beneath the earth as the king of the underworld. His palace was made of gold and glittered with gems.
