What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

It’s pouring. The wind is blowing down trees. Awful Ogre’s rattlesnake wakes him. He tickles his piranha, scatters his rats, and disengages his leeches. Another wonderful day is about to begin. Awful Ogre, huge, hungry, horrible–and totally lovable, will steal the heart of every reader. Larger than life–larger, in fact, than all other ogres, Awful Ogre packs into one day enough excitement, imagination, emotion, and sheer ebullience to last most of us a lifetime Jack Prelutsky and Paul O. Zelinsky have created a tour de force of epic proportions and infinite appeal.
