Henry isn’t happy when an uninvited guest suddenly interrupts his tea break. And he is less than thrilled when the little creature decides to stay along with its annoying habit.
With the unwelcome visitor getting under his feet all day, it’s easy for Henry to miss the signs that a dangerous and hungry bear has been seen in the area. How can he avoid being the next victim?
A charming story about friendship, tolerance and unexpected consequences, with a compelling refrain that all readers will want to join.
Although the Secret Giant is rarely seen, grandad is convinced he exists. It was the Giant who stood watch when they were camping, fixed the town clock and protected their tiny boat in the storm. Billy isn’t so sure; how could someone so enormous never be seen?
But now Billy can’t reach the top of the town mural he’s painting: could the Giant help? As soon as Billy meets the Giant, Billy runs away: he’s HUMONGOUS! But then Billy wonders if the Giant is tired of scaring people because he’s different – maybe he’s lonely, and just wants a friend.
There’s a mysterious luminosity in this book’s delicately detailed illustrations (complete with hidden giant), alongside characters drawn with humour and compassion. It’s a magical story about accepting people who are different.
