This edition of The Hobyahs is a treasure, and one of my favorite remnants of childhood. Have you ever heard of Hobyahs. If not, you'll have to read this book (if you can find a copy) to learn why there are no Hobyahs today:) The story features an old man, an old woman, a little girl, some Hobyahs, some turnips and a dog called "Little Dog /5.

This is a great book. I wanted it because my maternal grandmother used to tell me about the hobyahs when I was young, and I always enjoyed the story. I had been trying to find the book since last spring, but found mostly used editions, as it has been out of print for years. I finally found one that seemed nice based on the description, so I got it/5(6).

The Hobyahs. ONCE there was an old man and woman and a little girl, and they all lived in a house made of hempstalks. Now the old man had a little dog named Turpie and one night the Hobyahs came and said, 'Hobyah. Hobyah.

Hobyah. Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!'. The next night the Hobyahs came and said, " Hobyah.

Hobyah. Hob- yah. Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl. " And when the Hobyahs found that little dog Turpie's head was off they tore down the hempstalks, ate up the old man and woman, and carried the little girl off in a bag.

The Hobyahs is a book about little cat like goblins. They come at night and try to eat the parents and steal the little girl. But the dogs keep barking and scare them away. But every morning the old man or woman gets mad that the dogs kept them up all night that they scare them off one by one until they are all gone.

So the Hobyahs come and eat 3/5(1). The Hobyahs are planning an attack on an old man, old woman and young girl. San Souci adds some poetical phrases to add to the menace as well as a repetitive refrain chanted by the Hobyans to add to the read out loud aspect of the book/5.

The next night the Hobyahs came again, and said, "Hobyah. Hobyah. Hobyah. Tear down the hempstalks, eat up the old man and woman, and carry off the little girl!" And when the Hobyahs found that little dog Turpie's head was off they tore down the hempstalks, ate up the old man and woman, and carried the little girl off in a bag.

The tale is an example of a “noodlehead story” or “numskull story,” a nonsensical fable characterized by improbable plots, unintentional mishaps, silly humor, and a likeable, though dim-witted, main character.
