The Giants and the Joneses

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Farshore

Jumbeelia, a young girl giant from Groil, the Land of Giants, loves the stories of the iggly plop who climbed up the bimblestonk and was chased back down again by a giant.

Growing her own bimblestonk, she climbs down it and finds a whole world of iggly plops - our world, in fact, where Colette, Stephen and Poppy are very surprised to find themselves collected up into a bag and carried off back up the bimblestonk.

Collette has many fun and scary adventures while trying to escape from Groil and because Donaldson has invented a whole new language for the Giants, this sort-of sequel to the Jack and The Beanstalk fairy tale is given a fun and interesting new twist.
