Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before Shrek made it big on the silver screen, there was William Steigs SHREK!, a book about an ordinary ogre who leaves his swampy childhood home to go out and see the world. Ordinarily, that is, if a foul and hideous being who ends up marrying the most stunningly ugly princess on the surface of the planet is what you consider ordinary. SHREK! can be found in this collection of six modern picture-book classics by Steig, along with stories concerning creatures ordinary and extraordinary—from Irene, a brave and loving little girl who must battle a howling blizzard, to Spinky, a boy who is so completely annoyed by his family that he no longer has any use for the human race. Gathered together for the first time, these entertaining stories will delight fans of Steig, both old and new.

Synopsis:

To mark the 100th birthday of William Steig and in time for the blockbuster movie Shrek the Third, Square Fish presents the must-have deluxe ominbus of Steig picture book classics featuring everyones favorite ogre.

Synopsis:

Shrek, a horrid little ogre, goes out into the world to find adventure and along the way encounters a witch, a knight in armor, a dragon, and, finally, a hideous princess, who's even uglier than he is!

[An] "engrossing and satisfying tale." --Publishers Weekly

"Sure to enchant any child lucky enough to read it...Such an ingratiating, cheery book that no one will be able to resist it." --The Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

To mark the 100th birthday of William Steig and in anticipation of the next blockbuster movie Shrek the Third, Macmillan Audio presents The One and Only Shrek! the must-have collection of Steig classics featuring everyone's favorite ogre, read by Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci.

A collection of several of Steig's picture books for young readers, all of which contain elements to amuse adults as well as children. Several of these quirky stories are actually pretty moving. The eponymous Shrek provides an opportunity to compare the movie with its origin.
