8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By microjoe TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 3, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Another ripping story from one of my favorite English children authors, this one released in 2010. While copies from England are titled "The Ogre of OGelfoor", it is quite possible that the book will be released in a U.S. printing with a different title. That has happened with many of Ibbbotson's books already, and it gets confusing for fans of her work. From the first Ibbotson book I read, "The Secret of Platform 13" I have enjoyed her eccentric characters and stories.
In this new book, a Hag and her familiar, a troll, a wizard and many other magical creatures are living in the city of London as their natural homes have been lost to development. The magical creatures have a big convention every year to go on a mission to help someone. Right before the mission, the Hag's familiar refuses to go and she agrees to take an orphan boy named Ivo in its place. It appears that an ogre on an island has captured a princess and plans to eat her and the group is ordered to rescue her, but things are not always what they seem. I really enjoyed the way the author linked different small things together that seem minor details at the time, but all click together in bog ways later on. She is hilarious in a rude sort of way (I am not complaining a bit) like Roald Dahl. I highly recommend the author and this book for anyone that books about witches, ghosts, banshees, trolls, ogres, warlocks, and other creatures who turn out to be nice most of the time, while the humans are often the scariest characters in the books.

All of Ms Ibbotson's books are unique. The only consistent is the high quality of the writing and always interesting characters and places. Ogre of Oglefort was a hoot, a completely different take on an Ogre.
