First Young Puffin Romantic Giant by Kaye Umansky, Doffy Weir
In this enchanting and amusing story that plays on ideas of love, friendship, and fantasy crushes, Waldo, a giant, falls hopelessly in love with a picture of the beautiful Princess Clarissa. Guided by his friend Heavy Hetty the Wrestler, Waldo makes every romantic gesture he can think of to win the princess's heart. But when he finally meets the princess, he realizes what a bad match she would make for him—and what a lot of fun his friend Hetty is. Charming and humorous, the book's cheeky pictures sometimes tell a subtly different story from the text.
