Award-winning author Iain Lawrence creates an entertaining and magical adventure in The Giant-Slayer. It's 1955, and Laurie Valentine's best friend Dickie has contracted polio. Confined to a breathing machine in the hospital, he begs Laurie to stay by his side and tell him a story. As Laurie creates the tale of the giant Collosso and the young boy destined to stop him, Dickie starts to believe he's part of the story. But when Laurie is forced to stop telling the story, Dickie has to reach within himself to create his own ending.

    " I really liked this book. It has sparked my interest in learning more about polio and how it effected so many lives. A very unique story that will stay with me for quite some time. "

    " As a child of a polio survivor, I was intrigued by the fly-leaf description of the book. One of my children actually picked it up and finished it before I could. All I can say is "Wow!" The loneliness, the creativity and the hope of each child in the book is an inspiration. Thank you, Iain Lawrence! I borrowed the book from my local library, but have just now ordered my own personal copy. "

    " Very good book, thought provoking. Didn't really know much about the polio epidemic. Would like to know more. The author gives resources if one would like to pursue the subject. "

    " A great story! I loved how everything was so woven together. The author created--and kept creating--great, believable characters. I agree that the end was a little abrupt, but it worked so well with the rest of the story and the fact that children were telling it. "
