About Shrek!:

Before Shrek made it big on the silver screen, there was William Steig’s SHREK!, a book about an ordinary ogre who leaves his swampy childhood home to go out and see the world.

Ordinary, that is, if a foul and hideous being who ends up marrying the most stunningly ugly princess on the planet is what you consider ordinary.

,Before Shrek made it big on the silver screen, there was William Steig’s SHREK!,

William Steig carved out dual careers as both a highly respected and entertaining cartoonist and an award-winning, bestselling author of children’s picture books and novels. He won the prestigious Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, the Caldecott Honor for The Amazing Bone, the Christopher Award for Dominic, and the Newbery Honor for both Abel’s Island and Doctor DeSoto.

Stanley Tucci’s memorable roles include parts in the films Julie & Julia, The Lovely Bones, The Devil Wears Prada, The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, and Lucky Number Slevin. He also wrote, directed, and produced Big Night–winner of an Independent Spirit Award for Best Screenplay. For his performance in the Broadway production of Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune, Stanley received a Tony Nomination. He has also garnered two AudioFile Earphones Awards for his audiobook narration, which includes reading William Steig’s Shrek!
