Ogden is a very large ogre whose jim-jams have become mysteriously small all of a sudden. To help him fit back into them, his friends suggest he takes up a sport. However, finding an activity to suit an overweight ogre turns out to be a tricky task. As Ogden throws himself into his new hobbies he struggles to keep the buildings around him intact. Can he find a way to keep healthy without destroying the town?
The author of 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Cats Ahoy! has teamed up with illustrator Simon Rickerty for this entertaining picture book. Lively rhyming text and bright, humorous illustration make this a great book to read aloud, and it could also be a useful tool for introducing a range of healthy activities to children.
