WELCOME TO FAR, FAR WAY!
Once upon a time a big, green, smelly Ogre met a beautiful princess... and they fell in love! Now you can join Shrek, Fiona (and Donkey!) inside their magical world with this fantastic Essential Guide.
Read all about old friends, and meet some new ones.
Squelch around Shrek's swamp and visit the glamorous fairytale kingdom of Far Far Away.
Packed with great scenes from BOTH movies.
OK, I thought the movies were cool on a number of levels. Great showcase for CGI movies, witty humour in many places, multi-layered for maximum fun for adults, while still fun for young'uns... but I wouldn't say I am a die-hard fan of Shrek.
That's why I wouldn't rate this book too highly. Sure, it introduces all the characters, and sure it's printed on full-colour-glossy stock, and is hardcover... but not really worth the lion's share of $50.
Overall, cute, but nothing worth hunting majorly. It'll be on the Warehouse shelves cheaper than that in the not-too-distant future. Sorry folks, but this one is just a bit overpriced for what it is... a kids amusement book. Maybe some stickers in the next one or something... interactive is the way to go.
