Newbery award-winning author and Minnesotan Kelly Barnhill’s newest book explores the importance of generosity and having an open mind through a gentle tale of an Ogress who takes a runaway orphan under her wing, incurring the wrath of a nearby town. The story demonstrates how good and bad can coincide in one being, presenting characters that are both complex and relatable. It promises to be a perfect flashlight-under-the-covers book.
