The Yoga Ogre

Illustrated by Simon Rickerty

About The Book

Ogden the Ogre was worried one night.

His jim-jams had grown far too short and too tight.

The people said, "Jim-jams too tight and too short?

Overweight ogres should take up a sport."

But finding the perfect sport for a big, bumbling ogre isn't that easy, as everyone soon finds out!

Another infectiously funny picture book from the winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.
