In this terrific, lyrical text from a talented newcomer, a little girl named Anna has unusual playmates; a family of giants who visit only on certain days. When the sun shines just so and the wind blows like this and that on its way to somewhere else. The unusual way the giants play familiar childhood games (they use beachballs for marbles and literally play dolls with Anna's sister), gives Kevin Hawkes, winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and often on the Caldecott shortlist, great opportunities to play with scale and is the perfect platform for his quintessential larger-than-life characters. Kevin is the illustrator of numerous best-selling books, such as Weslandia (Candlewick) and Timothy Tunny Swallowed a Bunny (Laura Geringer).
