9780986315176: The Ogre and the Master

The Ogre wants the Kung-fu Master to teach him the ancient arts, but burping, farting and bad hygiene certainly aren't good behaviors that a master would stand for. Written in the spirit of an Aesop's Fable; both characters in the story have important lessons to learn and they aren't always easy. The Master and the Ogre come to discover that changing one's nature is far more difficult than changing one's behavior.

Filled with issues on facts of life and topics to start discussions on growing up, The Ogre and the Master is a unique story of growth and struggle where the main characters are anything but perfect. Written in the cautionary style of the classic children's fable, the story also uses language and issues of today to create an engaging and humorous tale that kids will want to read again and again.

In the world of children's fantasy books, Ogres are a mythological creature not to be messed with, on the same level as the cunning dragon. Terrorizing the land is the Ogre's favorite pastime so it's understandable that most people would avoid someone with such a cruel nature, but not the arrogant Master, he decides to tame the Ogre and utilize his ferocious nature for his own personal gain.

The Ogre and the Master is filled with vividly rich watercolor style illustrations that will captivate young children and older kids alike.
