For this little boy, having a daddy is like having his own personal giant. His daddy is so tall the clouds can rest on his shoulders. His sneezes are as powerful as hurricanes. And there’s no safer place to be than in a giant’s strong arms. The imaginative text expresses a toddler’s love and admiration for his father, and the bright, bold illustrations capture the gentle humor. This is a warm and lively celebration of fathers—those true giants among men.
