Ogre New Cover
The Odious Ogre
story by Norton Juster and pictures by Jules Feiffer



The Phantom Tollbooth is one of the classics of children’s literature, with over 3.3 million copies sold worldwide . . .



Now, after almost fifty years, Norton Juster and Jules Feiffer reunite to collaborate on The Odious Ogre

Clever, humorous text and dazzling pictures tell the story of a really rotten Ogre who terrorizes the entire countryside and all the surrounding towns, wreaking havoc and dining happily on the hapless citizens. But when the Ogre encounters a kind and friendly young lady who does her best to help him, the outcome is very surprising.

Don’t miss this extremely witty masterpiece from Scholastic’s distinguished Michael di Capua Books imprint.
