LoveReading View on Grandad's Secret Giant

This picture book from David Litchfield, author of the Waterstones-Prize winning The Bear and the Piano, is a GIANT story of belonging and friendship. 

He has hands the size of tables, Grandad said, legs as long as drainpipes and feet as big as rowing boats. Do you know who I mean? Yes, sighed Billy. The Secret Giant. But he's not real! Billy doesn't believe his Grandad when he tells him there's a giant living in his town, doing good deeds for everyone. He knows that a giant is too big to keep himself hidden. And why would he WANT to keep himself a secret? But as time goes on, Billy learns that some secrets are too BIG to stay secret for long...

This gentle story reminds us of the things and people that go unnoticed but have such a big impact on our busy lives.  Through his delighted prose and beautiful illustrations David Litchfield has created another wonderful story perfect for sharing.
