Summary

It's hard enough fending off ogres when you're a powerful wizard or a knight with an enchanted sword. Just try doing it with nothing but the wits you were born with. That's exactly what happened to Cassie Malloy when ugly, smelly, hairy creatures began appearing in her town. Now Cassie has to save herself from these six-foot beasts as they chase her and her siblings through the lonely streets of Paterson, New Jersey. But Cassie doesn't only have to save herself. The ogre band has come with a plan to turn Ike, her brother, into a fish, dooming him to spend forever swimming in the pond. They've even kidnapped Cassie's best friend, Deirdre, though no one really knows why. Finally, Cassie learns that the ogres are here because of the Powermongers Company and their excessive pollution. It's going to take everything the Malloy kids have got to win this battle. One thing's for sure they had better be clever, or they are all goners.

Excerpts

Then she heard the grunting noises that came from under the old cellar doors of the house. .... As the fumbling and grunting continued, she thought that maybe Mr. Fetter was stuck down there or something. "Mr. Fetter, is that you? Are you alright?" she called as she dropped her backpack down on the left door. She began to pull on the right door with all her might. "Mr. Fetter, it's me, Lucie," she called as she pulled. The door finally let loose and sprang open, and with that a terrible rotten odor hit her face. As the light fell down the stairs something very big shuffled over to the dark side of the cellar. She strained her eyes to see. And suddenly she realized what she was looking at. It was the face of this big beast thing. He looked like an ape man, but he had horns that seemed to come out of his big bushy eyebrows. His nose was smashed in and wide spread across his face. His huge mouth had two bottom teeth that were sticking up out of the corners. Those teeth were tall enough to reach over the top of his upper lip. ... His little yellow eyes were spread far apart on his big fat face. But right now they were wide opened in surprise. Then suddenly as she was gaping at him, his eyes started to narrow and get a mean look in them.
