The Ogre of OglefortEva Ibbotson
‘The ogre must be slain,’ said Norn Number One. ‘Killed,’ said the Second Norn. ‘Pulverized. Absolutely,’ said the Third. Then all three of them pointed to the audience and with one voice they cried: ‘THIS IS THE TASK!’
The annual Summer Meeting of Unusual Creatures is usually quite a gentle affair. But this year is different. When an ordinary unmagical boy called Ivo, a hag, a troll and wizard Brian Brainsweller are given this year’s Summer Task, they quail. They tremble. They briefly consider running away and hiding. They’re no match for the gruesome, terrifying, ghastly flesh-eating Ogre of Oglefort – not to mention the imprisoned princess they’ve been sent to rescue …
The Ogre of Oglefort is a wonderfully spooky young-fiction title from the award-winning author of Journey to the River Sea, Eva Ibbotson.
