Zoe (izoii) I think I read this around 2010/2011, and believe it wasn't very old at the time. While I don't know much about the plot, I vividly remember the cover. It features a purple, blue and black colour scheme. There is a big black tree in the front, along with a girl with black hair and a black cat. The cover is an illustration, and the characters have exaggerated features. From what I remember of the plot, a girl finds another world, and mentioned is a black shuck (big black dog) and goblins, and I specifically remember the goblins were attracted to very shiny things. It may have been a series, I read this in Canada, and it's very likely the publisher was Scholastic.

Alicia Skinner | 3 comments I am pretty sure this is May Bird and the Ever After by Jodi Lynn Anderson, a 3 part series. Her sphynx cat was named Somber Kitty, she meets a ghost named Pumpkin, Black shucks, and the goblins are definitely attracted to shiny things. I absolutely loved these books growing up!
