What do loud-sighin', eye-rollin', yawny-bored giants do for fun? Play giant steps, of course. And when you're a giant, the whole world is your playground! The fifth giant is it and his four friends run far and fast in all directions, taking them to the four corners of the globe and backover jaggy tip mountains and yawn mouth canyons, through red stripe deserts, dark tangle jungles and herds of trumpetin', thumpetin' wild animals.
Join the giants in their hilarious version of a familiar childhood game, where the outcome all depends on that fifth giant, all alone on the mountaintop counting ONE . . . TWO . . . THREE . . .

Most of us remember a favorite childhood game, Giant Steps. As we used to play it one person was It' while the others took steps, often asking 'May I?' Surely, there are countless variations, perhaps relating to region or culture. Nonetheless, forget everything you ever knew about the game and prepare yourself for an introduction to a rollicking new version as played by giants, real giants. There are five of these big fellows and they are very bored. There they sit atop a mountain wondering what to do. To pass the time they decide to play Giants Steps - their way. After doing 'one potata, two potata, three potata, four' to determine who will be 'It.' The fifth giant, who is usually unlucky winds up being 'It.' He sits there counting while the other four take off to the far corners of the globe. How and if he finds them makes a fun story for young readers.
