. What little secret would scare three terrible giants? . Why would a giant tremble at the sight of a butterfly? . Do giants throw temper tantrums? The answers to these questions are found in three mesmerizing tales of giants and a child. But the giants that crash and bellow through this book are unlike the giants of folklore. They behave in the most unusual manner, and find themselves in the most peculiar situations. What do these cantankerous, yet sympathetic giants have in common? They encounter a small little boy, who towers over the giants by way of wit and common sense. David L. Harrison's classic collection, richly illustrated by Philippe Fix, has been translated into ten languages and sold close to a million copies in it original edition.
