Ogden is a gnarly, man-eating ogre . . . with the dream of becoming a dancer. But no one will dance with him - not when they think they're going to be his next meal! Then Ogden meets Willow, a gutsy girl who lives in a tree house in the woods. She makes a deal with him: if he'll stop eating humans, she'll teach him to dance. But there are fouler creatures than ogres in the forest, and they might just scupper Ogden's dancing dreams . . .
Illustrated throughout by the talented and award-winning Chris Judge
