Synopsis

The Blacksmith and the Giant by Arthur Robins

Sam was the best blacksmith in the land, who made beautiful ironwork, all by hand. But he worked for a cruel and mean king who wouldn't pay Sam a single bean. There was also a GIANT, horrible and gory - but I won't go on - or I will spoil the story! A funny fairy tale, with a twist in its tail! For ages 4 to 7.
