Did you ever hear of ‘GIANTS’? Yeah? But these are not the friendly giants of these days, they’re the cruel killer-giants of them days, and Helen has heard many stories about these very giants, how they have killed and eaten hundreds of people and destroyed the homes and farms of many more. ....

Helen is a fine hand with a slingshot, and more than at home in the woods. After all, she was raised by bears. When she stumbles upon three evil giants, she hatches the perfect plan to rid the land of them. Well, almost perfect….

Andy Jones’s hilarious new folktale adaptation/middle reader is jam-packed with adventure and tales of adventure. It celebrates brave and resourceful girls, blended families, and storytelling itself, and features delightfully quirky illustrations by Katie Brosnan.
