At first May Belle is afraid of Ogre, but they have a lot of fun after she sees how small he is. They dress up, bake pies, and play games. In three short chapters, May Belle and Ogre get to know each other, and Ogre becomes more civilized due to May Belle’s no-nonsense guidance. First Ogre gets a bath, a pink bow, and pink toenail polish; then he learns to bake a blueberry pie; and finally he craves the warmth of a home and friends and moves in with May Belle and her dog.

[Bethany Roberts; Marsha Winborn] -- May Belle knows just what to do with a pesky little Ogre.   Summary When May Belle meets an Ogre who tries to take many of May Belle$s favorite things away, such as her hat and gloves, May Belle realizes that the best thing to do is make the Ogre a friend and learn to share so that both of them can be happy, in an easy reader tale about an unusual friendship.

  May Belle is a little girl who likes girly things, like pretty pink toenails and tea parties, but she is also super-spunky. She puts a trying-to-be-scary ogre in his place and tries to refine him a bit as they become friends/5. In this second entry in the May Belle and Ogre easy reader series, May Belle continues to try to civilize her friend, a furry beast without much sense of how the world works. In three short chapters, May Belle teaches Ogre how to work on a garden together, how to read a few words and how to find outdoor activities when Ogre is bored.
