When Tom’s mum dies he is overwhelmed by deep feelings of loneliness. He finds solace by walking up the hill where the giant is said to sleep. If Tom puts his ear to the ground he is sure he can hear the giant breathing. It is comforting.

When the hill rumbles with a terrible quake, Abram the giant wakes up after a long sleep. Abram’s mother left him sleeping for a long, long time so, like Tom, he knows about loneliness although his mum will come back and Tom knows that his mum never will. Tom gains huge strength from meeting Abram, he knows he is not completely alone.
