Synopsis

"Fee!" he said, and "Fi!" he said, and "Fo!" he said and "Fum!"

Look out children, the Giant of Jum is grumpy and hungry and he's off in search of a tasty snack. And the tastiest of all is a boy called Jack! But Jack and his friends don't see a scary giant, they see a magically tall man - a man who can fetch lost balls and rescue cats from trees! Perhaps this hungry giant is softer than he seems...

An incredible rhyming text and a brilliant, big-hearted twist on a classic fairy tale, from the uniquely talented author and poet, Elli Woollard, and award-winning illustrator, Benji Davies.

The Giant of Jum also contains an important message for all: don't eat kids, eat cake!

Bookseller

The illustrations brim with jokes and delightful details, the rhyming text is breezy fun, and the line
between darkly gruesome and good-hearted is deftly maintained.
