The Ogre of Oglefort by Eva Ibbotson - Goodreads
Things take a dire turn when they are entrusted, instead, with the rescue of Princess Mirella from the castle of the Ogre of Oglefort. So the witch, the wizard, the troll, and the orphan stay in the castle to nurse the ogre through his collapse.And that is one of the reasons I loved it. The narrator mostly tells the reader what everyone is doing and how they are getting on, but I think the intended audience would love them all and the crazy antics they get into.
