Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kids are never too young to learn about helping others—that when people are in need, the right thing to do is to step up.

When a boy named Oscar discovers a giant—a very hungry giant holding a sign that says “Food Please”—in his backyard, he knows he cant turn his back on him Yet its not easy feeding a hungry giant. A whole pizza disappears in a single gulp. Twelve blueberry muffins, 33 jars of peanut butter, 197 chocolate chip cookies—all just an appetizer. So what is little Oscar to do? Just how do you feed a hungry giant?

In this warmly illustrated and interactive picture book, the reader gets to help Oscar feed the giant. But despite Oscars best efforts—he cleaned out the fridge AND the pantry!—the giant still remains hungry. Thats when mom comes to the rescue. She has eight great recipes, including Mega-Pigs in Blanket, Jumbo Fries, The Biggest Burger in the World, Ginormous Blueberry Muffin. Each serves one giant—or eight kids. Yes, the “feed a giant” recipes are included in the book, printed in a separate 8-page mini cookbook, and are ideal for a kids party.

So how do you feed a hungry giant? With giant food. And a giant heart.

Review:

"A gentle giant clothed in patchwork clothing appears in a boy's front yard carrying a sign that says, 'Food Please.' The giant gobbles an entire pizza, slurps up 15 bottles of chocolate milk from a kiddie pool, and consumes 197 cookies, but remains hungry. Luckily, the boy's mother is willing to help. The well-integrated interactive elements — pop-ups, tabs, and flaps — add an extra touch of fun to this lighthearted story about compassion, which unfolds through the boy's breathless narration ('Seriously, you're not going to believe this') and his dog's sardonic commentary. Recipes for 'a hungry giant or eight little kids' are included. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
