The Giant of Jum
Illustrated by Benji DaviesAges 3-5
"Fee!" he said, and "Fi!" he said, and "Fo!" he said and "Fum!"
Look out children, the Giant of Jum is grumpy and hungry and he's off in search of a tasty snack. And the tastiest of all is a boy called Jack! But Jack and his friends don't see a scary giant, they see a magically tall man - a man who can fetch lost balls and rescue cats from trees! Perhaps this hungry giant is softer than he seems...
An incredible rhyming text and a brilliant, big-hearted twist on a classic fairy tale, from the uniquely talented author and poet, Elli Woollard, and award-winning illustrator, Benji Davies.
The Giant of Jum also contains an important message for all: don't eat kids, eat cake!
a read-aloud gem
The illustrations brim with jokes and delightful details, the rhyming text is breezy fun, and the line
between darkly gruesome and good-hearted is deftly maintained.
