Book Review: The Book of Giant Stories

Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a collection of four funny stories about giants, in which a boy (rather like the boy in The Reluctant Dragon) encounters a giant and demonstrates his quick-wittedness by either outwitting or befriending him.  The stories are lighthearted and fun, although not great literature, and they are illustrated with very nice paintings.  These funny, simple stories are perfect for the make-believe stage of children’s play, but are not complex enough to retain their appeal for older readers.
