Synopsis

Ogres Awake! by James Sturm, Alexis Frederick-Frost, Andrew Arnold

The knight and her horse, Edward, have made a startling discovery: there are five huge ogres asleep at her doorstep! When these monsters wake up, the kingdom will be in big trouble! And so the knight, Edward, and some garden gnomes fight back, not with swords and shields, but with potato peelers and spoons. It turns out that ogres are pretty friendly when they have full stomachs! Ogres Awake! Offers sweeter, goofy storytelling from the creators of Adventures in Cartooning. With simple how-to-draw tutorials on the endpapers, these cute picture books are a playful extension of the hit instructional series.

Reviews

This fun graphic novel for prereaders and beginning readers is filled with colorful, deceptively simple art and easy-to-read panels. --Booklist

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
