The knight and her horse, Edward, have made a startling discovery: there are three huge ogres asleep at her doorstep! When they wake up, the kingdom is in big trouble! The knight, Edward, and some garden gnomes fight back, not with swords and shields, but with potato peelers and spoons. It turns out that ogres are pretty friendly when they have full stomachs!

Praise for Ogres Awake!

"This fun graphic novel for prereaders and beginning readers is filled with colorful, deceptively simple art and easy-to-read panels." —Booklist
