"A spunky heroine, buoyant text, and irresistible illustrations make this easy reader a real winner," School Library Journal said of the first book about May Belle and her good friend Ogre. Now they are back, and they are still best friends. But there is just one problem-Ogre eats everything! What do you do with a friend who eats your food, your flowers, the notes you write him, and even the pictures you paint? Beginning readers will delight in Ogre's antics and May Belle's clever sense of fun as she keeps her unruly friend in line.

Kindergarten-Grade 2–An easy reader that features the two delightful characters from May Belle and the Ogre (Dutton, 2003). In each of three vignettes, their personalities shine through: a patient, loving child is willing to put up with an ever-hungry, sometimes-bored, but always-lovable monster. Beginning readers will enjoy sharing this book aloud as there are many opportunities for using expression (e.g., when bees chase Ogre, or when May Belle tries to stop him from eating her precious tulips). They will also be amused when he learns to read. Winborn's vivacious color cartoon illustrations portray Ogre as a hairy, but not scary, beast and May Belle as a happy, steadfast girl.– Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
