What the Ogre Made Us Do!

What the Ogre Made Us Do! is a collection of original fairy tales written by the students of John Pennington's Classical and Contemporary Fairy Tales Course (ENGL 289: Special Topics) in the spring semester of 2011. A Classroom and Pedagogical Collaborative Grant from the St. Norbert Collaborative made the print and web versions of this anthology possible.

The tales feature a variety of themes and approaches to the fairy-tale genre—or rather, each tale has its own flavor. As Pennington notes in his introduction to the anthology, "Recipes do indeed vary, but at heart are tales you'll want to gobble up, slurp, and relish." We hope you find What the Ogre Made Us Do! to be a delectable dish indeed.
