A little, anxious giant learns to be brave with the help of a new friend, in this picture book from Florence Parry Heide, author of The Shrinking of Treehorn.

The perfect storytime book for the child who needs a little help learning to be brave.

Everyone is afraid of something, but Bigelow is afraid of just about everything–clouds, alphabet soup, baths. One day Bigelow meets a tiny woman who is afraid of HIM. Luckily, Bigelow is better at making friends than being scary, and soon Mrs. Pimberly and Bigelow are eating pancakes together.

Mrs. Pimberly is surprised Bigelow is scared of so many things. Maybe if he acted more like a fierce giant and shouted “Fee Fi Fo Fum!” he wouldn't be so scared. Can these magic words really help Bigelow conquer his fear?

In a new edition, revisit this sweet, funny story of a giant finding his courage from Florence Parry Heide, author of The Shrinking of Treehorn and Princess Hyacinth. Illustrator Merrill Rainey puts a new contemporary spin on this fractured fairytale with his bright, playful cartoon style.

Parents and grandparents will love sharing this touching but humorous story , while kids will love roaring with Bigelow, “Fee Fi Fo Fum!”
