Before Shrek made it on the silver screen, there was William Steig's SHREK!, a book about an ordinary ogre who leaves his swampy childhood home to go out and see the world. Ordinary, that is, if a foul and hideous being who ends up marrying the most stunningly ugly princess on the surface of the planet is what you consider ordinary. SHREK! can be found in this collection of six modern classics by Steig, along with stories concerning creatures ordinary and extraordinary, including Irene, a brave and loving little girl who must battle a howling blizzard, and Spinky, a boy who is so completely annoyed by his family that he no longer has any use for the human race. Gathered together here for the first time, these entertaining stories will delight fans of Steig, both old and new. Download and start listening now!

    " I loved the first story in here about Shrek. The others were excellent but not near as fun as Shrek. Overall a wonderful book for reading to the kids. "

    " A collection of several of Steig's picture books for young readers, all of which contain elements to amuse adults as well as children. Several of these quirky stories are actually pretty moving. The eponymous Shrek provides an opportunity to compare the movie with its origin. "

    " I enjoyed it. 6 little short stories and hard to believe that the Shrek movie came from the first one. A nice little diversion. "

    " Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci read the fabulous William Steig's SHREK!, Brave Irene, Dr. DeSoto, The Amazing Bone, Spinky Sulks, and Caleb and Kate. An hour of pure joy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mesh | 1/6/2009

    " Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci read five stories by Steig.

    The narrator make the otherwise slow and not too thrilling stories stand out.

    Shrek stands out in terms of writing. "
