Children's LiteratureWhat would you do if you met an ogre who wanted your feet or stole your blueberry pie? This book is a collection of three funny stories about a little girl and her adventures with an ogre. There are wonderful pictures that have great details like freckles on May Belle's nose, warts on the ogre's nose, flowers on the ogre's gloves and purple-checked sheets on the ogre's bed, which happens to be in a dresser drawer. May Belle loves to paint her toenails, play make-believe, bake pies, and dance. She is a delightful, endearing character and in every story she sings at least one song. The ogre is anything but frightening and adds so much humor to the stories. You can't help but smile when you read this book. It would be a great read-a-loud and one that you will want to revisit often. 2003, Dutton Children's Books, Ages 4 to 6.
