One sluggish afternoon young Gronny decides to scare up some fun for his ogre friends and family. Instead, he catches a contagious case of yawns from a deceptively safe-looking creature in a playground, and he brings them back to the ogre homestead, where no one has ever seen a yawn before. The yawns spread like crazy and inspire ogre hysterics.

Award-winning poet Matthea Harvey and illustrator extraordinaire Giselle Potter team up to create an indescribably unique picture book about wanting to be normal, then coming to appreciate being different. Ruby would love to be like everyone else—not easy when you have a tiara-wearing mother and a father who spends his time trimming outrageous topiary. She'd also like to get a nice normal pet, maybe a dog. Then, on a family vacation to Norway, she finds herself adopted by a small, affectionate glacier.
