The Giant Book of Giants by Saviour Pirotta...Review & Giveaway!


I have just shared the most GIANT hit of a book with A&W.  The Giant Book of Giants by Saviour Pirotta  is an absolute hit at our house for scary (but not too terribly scary!) fun and excitement.  Here is the scoop...

With an incredible, huge, interactive poster and six adventurous stories, The Giant Book of Giants is larger than life!


The pop-up, pull-out poster in this BIG tome measures over four feet tall--and offers plenty of playful extras, including flaps to lift and removable items such as a clock tower pocket watch, pipe organ harmonica, and even the giant's ear wax! The action-packed tales in the book include “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Sinbad's Third Voyage,” and “Coyote Tricks the Giant.” Monster fun for any child--tall or small!

This book is the ultimate in interesting for A&W.  The Giant Book of Giants is filled with great stories.  We have read through all six and the boys enjoyed them all and ask to hear them regularly.  The only one of the six included stories we had read before was "Jack and the Beanstalk" so the others were all new to us and the boys really enjoyed each (the other stories not mentioned above are "Momotaro, The Peach Boy", "The Curious Giantess" and "Finn and Buggane").  Each of the stories are 5-10 minute reads each which have made them perfect "snack time" stories for us.  My guys like scary things but these would be a little much for them right before bed.  For an older child they would be super bedtime stories!  The illustrations are very well done and depict each giant from the story in an original fashion which my boys liked a great deal.  They love those scary giants!



While the book alone would have been a hit in our home, the poster made it a real standout.  The included poster which is in a front pocket of the book is amazing.  It is almost as tall and as wide as I am and the giant is an actual pop-out.  It really is outstanding.  The poster is full of fun giant "facts" and lift the flaps which A&W just love.  They, naturally, think pulling out the earwax is great fun (ewwww!) and they also like how you can pull things from his pockets.  The poster is made of substantial paper and is of great quality.  We have not hung ours up yet because we like having it as a companion to the book which we now read daily.

The Giant Book of Giants is an absolute standout for creativity and is sure to be a hit with the 5 and up crowd.  Grab a copy today on Barnes & Noble by clicking HERE.  It is on sale now for just $12.21 which is a steal.

Thanks for reviewing my book so favourably. It was a lot of hard, but enjoyable, work. Momotaro is my favourite story in the collection, which was whittled down from 20 to six.
