AND JULES FEIFFER PUBLISHES AGAIN!
AUTHOR EVENT: Jules Feiffer and Norton Juster
Join author Norton Juster and illustrator Jules Feiffer, the collaborators behind The Phantom Tollbooth, as they make several fall appearances in support of their latest project together, The Odious Ogre, the story of a really rotten Ogre who is extraordinarily large, exceedingly ugly, unusually angry, constantly hungry, and absolutely merciless.
Praise for The Odious Ogre
"Kids [are] sure to enjoy Juster's rich wordplay and happily ridiculous story and Feiffer's wonderfully scratchy and energetic watercolors of the greedy ogre, the terrified townspeople and the utterly pleasant and otherwise unremarkable heroine. A delicious morsel with which to whet the palate for other works by these giants of children's literature." - Kirkus
National Book Festival
October 24th @ 1:00 PM
