Children and Young Adults
A Giant terrorises the Good People who live in the woods. One day he falls over and bumps his head and he doesn’t remember who he is. Is he kind or mean? The Good People decide to lie and and tell him that they are great friends. The Giant accepts this and from this day onwards they live peacefully together. He uses his strength to look after the Good People. In return he makes friends for life.
The book explores the concepts mean and kind in an inventive way. Duzakin’s naivistic illustrations are expressive and the fear, anger and eventually the joy of the Good People are portrayed clearly through his pictures.
