Once there was a giant who did just what you would think a giant would do – whatever he wanted to, no-one would stop him. He pulled up the trees, and destroyed the mountains. Over time the giant had destroyed so much land that there was no trees and mountains anymore. This meant that there were no animals, no birds, and nothing grew anymore. The giant became lonely and sad. He soon realised how bad he had been and set about restoring everything he had destroyed. The Lonely Giant, is a simple, yet very poignant book. It doesn’t just contain a beautiful story, it is thought-provoking too. It creates a talking point for children to be able to ask questions about what will happen to the earth if people keep destroying nature. This book would be a great asset for any primary school teacher. Children need to learn from an early age that their actions always have consequences, whether good or bad. This book is about teaching them to appreciate nature, and what will happen if they don’t. Though they may not be able to pull up trees!! The softly coloured illustrations, drawn by the author, are divine. They capture the essence of the story perfectly. Even without reading the words, children would be able to fully understand what is happening. The pictures also have an emotional pull to them, and you can gauge on every page just how the giant is feeling. This is a versatile book that I’m sure little kids will enjoy reading, and their parents will enjoy sharing with them, especially at night-time.
