Listener Opinions

    " I think this is a good book for children to read, it teaches generousity and thinking of others before yourself. The story is centered around a kind hearted giant who has shabby clothes and wants to look smart. He manages to to buy a smart outfit and has seemingly achieved his goal. He then however begins to hand out his large clothes to people who are more needy of them than he. He realises that these are all material things and in the end is just as happy in his old clothes. He accumulates many friends along the way on the back of his generous behavior. I think this is a wonderful book with excellent detailed pictures. All three of my children love this book and it is one that I would highly recommend. "

    " I think this is a very descriptive, well illustrated story. It portrays the gentle nature of this giant called George and how he helps others without any thought for himself. Having bought himself some new clothes he finds that there are animals, all with a greater need than him and he gives away his new items of clothing. They are used for a sail, a home and a sleeping bag. It includes descriptive adjectives. eg. smart shirt, wonderful scarf, magnificent sail etc. It also uses repetition and some rhyme. A brightly illustrated book. "

    " Whilst this book follows the usual Julia Donaldson formula, it is always a great bed time story. My daughter knows the story off by heart and sings along happily as the Giant gives away his new clothes to all those he meets. It never fails to entertain! "
