A comic tale based on Irish mythology and the Giant's Causeway from award-winning author Sally Prue. If you go to Ireland and catch the bus to Ballycastle, there by the sea you'll find the Giant's Causeway. This is the story of how the causeway was made and it all starts with Finn McCool, the biggest giant in Ireland, who sets out to find an even bigger giant across the sea in Scotland. But Finn doesn't always have the best ideas and it's up to his wife Oona to come to the rescue when the Scottish giant follows Finn back home... This funny retelling of an Irish myth from award-winning author Sally Prue has whimsical black-and-white illustrations by Brendan Kearney and is perfect for children who are developing as readers. The Bloomsbury Readers series is packed with brilliant books to get children reading independently in Key Stage 2, with book-banded stories by award-winning authors like double Carnegie Medal winner Geraldine McCaughrean and Waterstones Prize winner Patrice Lawrence, covering a wide range of genres and topics. With charming illustrations and online guided reading notes written by the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE), this series is ideal for reading both in the classroom and at home.

Sally Prue isn't sure where she was born, but from the time she was adopted as a baby she was brought up in Hertfordshire, where she still lives. When her daughters were small, Sally taught recorder and piano whilst also writing children's fiction, and is the winner of the Branford Boase Award and the Smarties Prize Silver Award. Sally has a set of Northumbrian bagpipes that she doesn't play very often, which is probably a good thing!More About Sally Prue
