The Stone Giant
This cool little book tells such a good story! It is a kind of fairy tale with terrific illustrations.
A girl, called only “the child,” is left behind on an island when her father, a knight, goes to fight a giant. She waits for him, but he doesn’t come home. The child decides she will have to rescue him, so that is what she does. First, she has to swim to the land of the giant. She takes her knife and a mirror. She walks into the forest and finds an old woman who gives her an umbrella to protect her from the giant’s eyes. The child finds the giant’s land. It is full of boulders. Nothing grows there, and there aren’t even any birds.
Do you think the girl will defeat the giant? Will she save the giant’s victims? You will have to read this exciting book to find out! I only wish it was a longer story.
