'The Ogre' is the first novel in the series 'Sráid an Iarla' (Earl's Street) featuring Mártan in an adventure for 9-10 year olds.

As dogs are being stolen from all over town, a big dark-haired man (known to Mártan as the 'Ogre') and a youthful blonde lady come to live in Number 2, Little Gate Street. When a neighbour's dog disappears Mártan becomes even more curious about the new neighbors. But who is the Ogre? And who is stealing the dogs?

"Scéal iomlán réalaíoch ... feiceann an gasúr gné osnádúrtha leis an scéal de bharr a chuid léitheoireachta agus samhlaíochta, agus de bhrí go nglacann sé go litriúil le meafar i gcaint na ndaoine fásta. Thar a bheith éifeachtach! Níl an chaint sa leabhar róchrua agus tá sé ar chumas m'iníne é a léamh. Beidh orm dul sa tóir ar na leabhair eile sa tsraith!" — Aonghus Ó hAlmhain, 'Smaointe Fánacha Aonghusa'
