Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

Synopsis:

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Steig's classic tale of the repulsive ogre is now available in this stunning jacketed hardcover edition. Steig's original sketches grace the end papers and a redesigned jacket brings readers up close and personal with the ogre that inspired three hit films. Full color.
