When a Hag, an orphan boy and a troll called Ulf get sent to rescue a princess from an ogre, they expect it to be a fairly standard magical mission.

    " A horrible ogre lives on a far distant isle, hoping for peace and quiet, but he is plagued by humans on the run who want to be changed into animals to escape their troubles. When the misfit Princess Mirella arrives, running away from the dismal fate of an arranged marriage, she causes the ogre to have a nervous breakdown, and a small party of rescuers, sent by the Norn, or fates, find they have their hands full trying to take care of the ogre and figure out what to do with the princess. As usual Ibbotson has created a fun, cozy fantasy romp where the bad guys are vanquished and everyone lives happily ever after. Middle grades. "

    " I love this author-- I'll read anything she writes, even books about ogres aimed at eight-year olds. This did not disappoint. "

    " This book has everything you love about Eva Ibbotson's children's books -- humor and magic, expectations turned on their heads, children who are different and wonderful and powerful. Not everything is what it appears or what you expect, and good always triumphs in the end. "

    " A good story for kids. I liked the exploration of the various characters, so that we can see that we are more than what is on the surface. It showcased that we don't have to accept what we may perceive as our fate. A decent, harmless read. "
