Two 601-year-old goblin tricksters from Korea go on an unexpected Halloween adventure in New York City in this tongue-in-cheek story from Frances Cha, critically acclaimed author of If I Had Your Face, and #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator Jaime Kim.

"A sweet, comical Halloween venture for all." -Kirkus Reviews

Doki and Kebi are two Korean magical goblin twin brothers who couldn't be more different!

Kebi loves to scare people (maybe a little too much) and explore!

Doki would rather give people bags of gold when he's not reading a book!

Despite their differences, Doki and Kebi are inseparable. When it's time for the goblin tricksters to move, the brothers decide to make their new home together in a strange, unknown land...New York City! As they prepare for the new customs of Halloween, Doki and Kebi are in for a surprise in this new holiday adventure inspired by the Korean mythology of dokkaebi.
