Description

'Funny, touching and visually stunning, this really is a book to treasure'—Daily Mail

A GIANT story of belonging and friendship from David Litchfield, author ofThe Bear and the Piano. "He has hands the size of tables," Grandad said, "legs as long as drainpipes and feet as big as rowing boats. Do you know who I mean?" "Yes," sighed Billy. "The Secret Giant. But he's not real!" Billy doesn't believe his Grandad when he tells him there's a giant living in his town, doing good deeds for everyone. He knows that a giant is too big to keep himself hidden. And why would he want to keep himself a secret? But as time goes on, Billy learns that some secrets are too BIG to stay secret for long...      

This delightful heartfelt story of belonging and friendship teaches the importance of tolerance and acceptance to young children.

Don't miss David Litchfield's best-selling first book The Bear and the Piano, the Waterstones Children's Book Prize, Illustrated Book category winner in 2016. 120,000 copies have been sold in the UK.
