Shrek! is a great book for children who love reading books about monsters.

Shrek, a horrid little ogre, goes out into the world to find adventure and. Shrek! is a great book for children who love reading books about monsters. William Steig’s illustrations are truly beautiful and hilarious especially of the images of Shrek himself. Shrek! is another memorable classic book from the great mind of William Steig and it is about how Shrek, a repulsive ogre, tries to find the princess to marry after he leaves his parents’ home.

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Argh, it's Shrek, spitting flame and venting smoke, even uglier than his parents, who kick him goodbye and send him off in the world. He's off on a linear journey to find his true love, foretold by a witch after she recovers from the sight of him. In a maniacal version of the hero's quest, he finds helpers and perils along the way: a dragon, a dream, a donkey, and more. The text rolls right along, here breaking into rhyme, there into knightish talk ("You there, varlet . . . why so blithe?"), there into outright silliness ("Pheasant, peasant? What a pleasant present!") Perfectly pleased with his hideous self, Shrek finally gains entrance to the ugly princess' castle, and after an operatic duet, the two are united, the bride carrying a cactus for a bouquet. The pictures are just as nutty as the story, blending with the text so thoroughly, sometimes echoing, sometimes expanding it, that it's hard to imagine one without the other. It's all here for Steig fans: magic, animism, chaos, self-reliance, hope, and fulfillment, and from one offbeat episode to the next, it all hangs together to make Shrek's destiny seem just right. The fast-forward movement of the story and the inventive , challenging language, full of surprises, make this especially fun to read aloud. --Karen Litton, London Public Libraries, Ontario, Canada

Bought this as a gift for a Director of SHREK: The Musical, and was amazed that she and her cast didn't know the original source of the story. The Steig illustrations and story in this one are just too wonderful!

Daughter loves it, even though it's nothing like her beloved movie series...lol. She must have read it twenty times now. Thank you.
Molace
Shrek is the perfect read aloud. The word choice sizzles. The irony is hilarious. The illustrations cause giggles.
Faulkree
A must buy and read, especially for teachers. Most kids know the movies, but not the origins of the ogre.
Jugami
The movie may be loosely based on this the characters in this book, but it is definitely not the movie. That said, I like this book. I am a 27 year old man and I enjoyed laughing through this with my fiancé at a coffee shop and decided to buy it for a few dollars. I haven't opened it in a while, but if I remember right, there may be some child inappropriate parts, especially if you don't like exposing your child to more Grim's Fairytale type stuff.

This Shrek would never change the way he did in the movie where he becomes nice and has friends. The book is totally different than the movie, there's no fairytale characters and Shrek meets Donkey but briefly. While the princess is just ugly and doesn't start off as a beautiful human like in the movie. Just don't expect a long novel, it's a very short book.

I didn't know Shrek started like this. Love it.
The language that Steig uses to create this tale and to endear this character to readers is simply marvellous. We want to read the book over and over again. Of course, this book inspired the writers of the movie so one should not expect it to be the book version of the movie. Both book and movie have their rightful place and value. Enjoy.
