The Ogress and the Orphans

We rated this book:


The Ogress and the Orphans is about a misunderstood Ogress, fifteen neglected orphans, crows, and some books. Can these abnormal heroes save Stone-in-the-Glen from a mischievous dragon before it is too late? Following the plot makes you root for kids until the very end. This is a good book; it starts out slow but then gets really exciting. I like everything about it except for the fact that the author uses the word ‘listen’ too much. I also like that each character is entirely unique because it gives each character their own part. I like that the crows in the story can talk to their friend the Ogress. Even though The Ogress and the Orphans has fantasy characters it is still believable. People who like realistic fantasy should buy this book. This is a book best suited to tweens and teens. This book is a pleasure to read.
