Product description

George the giant is sick of being the scruffiest giant in town! He kits himself out with smart new trousers, a smart shirt, a stripy tie and shiny new shoes. Now George is the smartest giant in town! But on his way home he meets lots of poor animals who need his help. Soon George’s tie is warming a giraffe’s neck, his shirt becomes a sail for a goat’s boat, and his shoe becomes a mouse-house. But suddenly a very cold George has given all his clothes away! Now he feels like the daftest giant in town. Will the grateful animals say a special thank you to the KINDEST giant in town? This rhyming tale of giant generosity will make you feel all fuzzy and warm inside.

    The smartest giant in town is an unforgetable book about George, a giant, who buys new clothes and then gives them away to animals who need them more than he does. I recommend this book for young readers aged 2-6

    I think this book is rubbish because giants don’t live in towns. Well do they?
