Editor reviews

Gather the children and the old folks and grab a seat on the front porch, because here’s another short folk tale told by master storyman, Rob Cleveland. Filled with plucked banjos and fun, tasteful sound effects, this seven-minute adventure pits a farmer and his wife against a "big, gruff ogre" who claims to own the whole valley. What follows is a test of wits. With a quaint moral lesson and a satisfying end, The Ogre Bully makes for a satisfying lunch time treat...or a positive lead-in to naptime. Adults, listen for a playfully veiled political satire. But don’t spoil it for the kiddos.

Summary

In this story, a farmer and his wife match wits with a large, mean-spirited ogre. If they can't outwit him, they will end up with no crops of their own to eat or sell.

This whimsically drawn story, illustrated by A. B. Hoffmire, is based on an old Swedish folktale.
