Before Shrek made it big on the silver screen, there was William Steig's Shrek!, a book about an ordinary ogre who leaves his swampy childhood home to go out and see the world.

"Steig's epigrammatic genius is given full rein in this engrossing and satisfying tale. The implicit promise (or threat) of a sequel - perhaps detailing the exploits of the pair's offspring - is indeed delicious to contemplate." (Publishers Weekly)
"The fast-forward movement of the story and the inventive , challenging language, full of surprises, make this especially fun to read aloud." (School Library Journal)
