First published in 1968, The Giant Under The Snow is beautifully written, subtle and evocative. Breathtakingly exciting and impossible to put down, it transports the reader into an intensely atmospheric and chilling world where the imagination knows no bounds and is sure to grip a new generation of young readers. It really is a must read - an enthralling, timeless fantasy by a master storyteller - and one that will stick long in your mind, whether you’re a 9 year old child or an adult long after you’ve finished it.

Synopsis

Giant Under The Snow by John Gordon

The Giant under the Snow created a fascinating world of magic, ancient evil and curses long before Harry Potter and His Dark Materials. Three children find an ornate Celtic buckle. To them it's treasure, a fantastic find. They have no idea that it has awakened a giant who has lain at rest for centuries and unleashed a powerful and ancient force in the form of an evil warlord and his Leathermen who have been awaiting this moment, this chance to wield their deadly power. In a chilling tale full of menace and suspense the final battle between good and evil must be fought. This is a story that transcends age.

'I've loved this book since I was a child. Breathtakingly exciting, and quite impossible to put down; on each re-reading it's as vivid and powerful as it was the first time' - Michelle Paver
