The Twin Giants by Dick King-Smith
Published by Walker Books, 2007

Dick King-Smith has a flair for finding the most unusual subjects for his children’s books. The Oscar-winning film Babe based on his book, The Sheep-Pig tells the story of a little pig who behaves in every way like a sheep dog. In The Twin Giants Lottavim and Normus are most surprisingly struck with the same thought at exactly the same moment when they turn twenty; they both want a wife.

But how do you find one giantess, let alone two, when the girls of marriageable age in the rich and fertile valley below their home are only five and a half feet tall?

The Twin Giants is a great book for first or second class children. Its sturdy hardback format with spaciously laid out text and endearing characters drawn by prize-winning illustrator, Mini Grey will instantly appeal to young readers.
