LoveReading View on Ogres Don't Dance

Big, green and ugly, Ogden the Ogre doesn’t look like a likely person to find on the dance floor. But despite his size and dodgy coordination, Ogden loves to dance. When Ogden meets a young girl in the woods and promises not to eat her, he lands himself his first dancing lesson. Will Ogden be able to find a partner and fulfil his dancing dreams? A delightfully entertaining story perfectly imagined in Chris Judge’s illustrations.

Ogres Don't Dance Synopsis

Ogden is a gnarly, man-eating ogre ...with the dream of becoming a dancer. But no one will dance with him - not when they think they're going to be his next meal! Then Ogden meets Willow, a gutsy girl who lives in a tree house in the woods. She makes a deal with him: if he'll stop eating humans, she'll teach him to dance. But there are fouler creatures than ogres in the forest, and they might just scupper Ogden's dancing dreams...

Illustrated throughout by the talented and award-winning Chris Judge.
