The Ogre of Oglefort
When a Hag, an orphan boy called Ivo, Ulf the troll and wizard Brian Brainsweller are sent to rescue a princess from an ogre, they briefly consider running away and hiding instead. Can these unlikely friends be any match for the gruesome, terrifying, ghastly, flesh-eating Ogre of Oglefort? But not all is as it first appears - the Ogre is depressed and the princess doesn't want to be rescued. The Ogre of Oglefort is a wonderfully spooky and spellbinding read from award-winning author Eva Ibbotson.
