Description

“Light-hearted and rambunctious . . . a fairytale with a difference” – Guardian Best Children’s Books of 2023

The Ogre Who Wasnt is a fresh and funny story of a little princess who hates the stuffy palace, but loves the creatures she meets in the garden.

From Sir Michael Morpurgo (Children’s Laureate 2003-4) and Emily Gravett, the award-winning duo behind the bestselling picture book, A Song of Gladness.

In this classic fairytale with a modern twist, meet Clara: a small, strong-willed princess who likes running wild, jumping ditches and climbing trees . . . but most of all, collecting creepy-crawlies and making them her friends. That’s not easy with a bossy butler and a pernickety nanny always on your case.

When Clara discovers that an ogre she keeps in her shoe under her bed isn’t an ogre at all, he offers her a way out of her predicament. There’s only one thing she needs to do . . .
