Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–2—These stories are abridged versions of chapters in Parnell's The Barefoot Book of Monsters! (2003). Excellent beginning chapter books, they are frightening enough to keep early readers' attention, but they are not overwhelming. An ogre with an appetite for humans, a captured princess, and a young gardener with a mission to save the king are the three elements that make Ogre an entertaining tale of heroism. The second title features an adventure-seeking princess, a brave hunter, and a hungry monster in a tale that is not easily forgotten. Both books are filled with humorous color illustrations that enhance comprehension.—Rachel Artley, Watertown Elementary School, TN

    A delightful tale of a young princess and her pursuit of her dream. This tale encourages readers to pursue their dream or dreams and not be convinced by others to abandon what they have in their heart & mind to do. This was a great escape and a fun journey with the young princess and her "supporting cast" to see a monster that they only heard about. *Delightful summer reading book and easy-to-read; fun & entertaining reading.
