Book Description

The Ogglies: A Dragon Party for Firebottom is a gorgeous warm-hearted picture book that tells the story of the Oggly children and their beloved dragon pet, Firebottom. The Ogglies are interesting characters with green skin, lumpy noses and tough teeth; they eat rusty cans, love sticky soup and are sure to give children a good laugh. The Ogglies are very worried about their dragon, Firebottom, and decide to throw him a birthday party to cheer him up. The story is delightfully silly; the Ogglies have positively crazy ideas and everything gross is, in fact, good. Children and adults alike will laugh as they see all the pictures and hear all the goofy words and phrases used.
