The Ogress and the Orphans

Barnhill, K.
Stone-in-the-Glen was a flourishing town focused on neighbourliness and exploring literature and ideas. When the town falls on hard times, the library and other important buildings are burnt down, poverty, distrust, and self-centeredness take over, and people no longer care about the town. It takes the actions of a kindly Ogress and a group of orphans to change this negative attitude and repair the town. This engaging novel, with fantastical creatures, supports creative and critical thinking and is suitable for an individual novel study, class read-aloud, or literature circle. It addresses the importance of literature, community, kindness, belonging, and being a good neighbour.
