Book Information

Farrar Straus Giroux 1990

Do you think children ever get tired of trying to be good? What if they gave free rein to their not so good side... at least through a picture book? So, meet young Shrek son of an ugly mother and an ugly father and so ugly in his own right that animals and plants shrink away when they see him coming. Shrek has come of age and is being kicked out from the black hole in which he was hatched and is off to frighten the world and see what damage he can do. With rhymes and witches and dragons, the journey is filled with a humorous look at doing one's worst rather than one's best. Heeding the witches' advices, Shrek goes to find his princess in the hopes of living "horribly ever after." This is a great read aloud that will delight every child who deep inside would love to unleash her inner Shrek. Simply great fun and wonderful imagination. Ages 4-8 40 pages
