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
