Book Description

The Ogglies of Smelliville is a gorgeous warm-hearted picture book telling the story of a family of loveable, green fantasy creatures—the Ogglies—and their many fun-filled adventures. It is a great story for adults to read aloud to their children due to the goofy Oggly language that is sure to get a giggle, and the illustrations can be cause for great discussion.


The Ogglies eat rusty cans and love sticky soup. They have green skin, lumpy noses and tough teeth. Come and meet the Oggly family, who do normal Oggly things, such as cooking bootlace soup and messing up the living room. Join the Oggly twins on a whirlwind dragon adventure! This beautifully illustrated title is filled with quirky Oggly characters and laughable ideas, as well as a special sing-along song.
