The annual Summer Meeting of Unusual Creatures is usually quite a gentle affair. But this year is different. A young boy, a hag, a troll and a wizard are given the task of rescuing a princess from an ogre. They quail. They tremble. They consider running away and hiding. Can they be any match for the ghastly, flesh-eating Ogre of Oglefort? But not all is as it seems. The Ogre is depressed and not in the mood for eating anyone. What’s more, the princess doesn’t even WANT to be rescued. So the bossy Norms, who rule over everyone, send a gang of the vilest, most petrifying ghouls to get the job done… With all her classic hallmarks, this Eva Ibbotson fantasy is a marvellously magical tour-de-force.
