Synopsis

The Bone Giant A North American Tale by Evelyn Foster

Exciting stories from around the world told in fewer than 180 words, suitable for children who are starting to read independently. The series introduces readers to stories from other cultures and encourages them to find where the story comes from on a map. This tale comes from North America. Eagle the brave loves animals and birds. But when he sails to an island with a stranger to go bird-watching, he gets a nasty surprise...The tale has echoes of Jack the Giant-Killer - will a small boy defeat a mighty giant? Puzzles at the back of the book encourage children to reread and retell the story in their own words, and helps build vocabulary by matching words to characters.
