The One and Only Shrek!
Plus 5 Other StoriesAudiobook CD - 2007
Horribly hideous Shrek leaves home and terrifies everyone he encounters in his search for his equally ugly bride, in an omnibus of six stories, Shrek!, The Amazing Bone, Brave Irene, Spinky Sulks, Caleb and Kate, and Doctor DeSoto, releasing just in time to mark the author's one-hundredth birthday and the release of the next Shrek movie.
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. 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.
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 everyone's favorite ogre.
