Little Ogre's Surprise Supper Synopsis

Everyone knows that ogres eat children. Everyone except Jack. So when Little Ogre meets Jack and says, 'I want you for supper', Jack does a funny thing. He doesn't scream or run away - he's delighted to be invited! Poor Jack doesn't realize he is the supper - a special birthday supper for Little Ogre's Mum! But Little Ogre and Jack get along well, and when it's time to put Jack in the cooking pot Little Ogre is faced with a very difficult decision. Will Jack become a meal, or a new best friend? This is a deliciously dark and funny tale, in which friendship comes before food.
