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.From AudioFile:
Steig's small gem (later transformed into the blockbuster movie) is masterfully narrated by actor Stanley Tucci. Smelly, flame-throwing, and full of his own ugly swagger, Tucci's Shrek shrieks and belches his way through this tale, encountering cackling witches, knights, and punning donkeys, whose distinct voices further enrich the story's originality. In Shrek's upside-down world, good is bad, and ugly is better. The story's triumphant happy-ever-after ending is crowned with a hilarious back-and-forth duet between Shrek and his true match, the world's ugliest princess, who croons to him: "Your nose is so hairy/Oh, let us not tarry/ Your look is so scary/I think we should marry." Stanley Tucci revels in every bit of Steig's humor, ensuring that listeners of all ages will, too. J.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
