Kids are never too young to learn about helping others--that when people are in need, the right thing to do is to step up.

When a boy named Oscar discovers a giant--a very hungry giant holding a sign that says "Food Please"--in his backyard, he knows he can't turn his back on him Yet it's not easy feeding a hungry giant. A whole pizza disappears in a single gulp. Twelve blueberry muffins, 33 jars of peanut butter, 197 chocolate chip cookies--all just an appetizer. So what is little Oscar to do? Just how do you feed a hungry giant?

In this warmly illustrated and interactive picture book, the reader gets to help Oscar feed the giant. But despite Oscar's best efforts--he cleaned out the fridge AND the pantry --the giant still remains hungry. That's when mom comes to the rescue. She has eight great recipes, including Mega-Pigs in Blanket, Jumbo Fries, The Biggest Burger in the World, Ginormous Blueberry Muffin. Each serves one giant--or eight kids. Yes, the "feed a giant" recipes are included in the book, printed in a separate 8-page mini cookbook, and are ideal for a kid's party.

So how do you feed a hungry giant? With giant food. And a giant heart.
