Riassunto: Giants are as old as story-telling itself - and as varied. The stories in this book come from many countries - England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Rumania, and Russia. In these eighteen tales, Ruth Manning-Sanders writes of such old friends as the famous giant who lived above the bean-stalk, whose "Fee! Fi! Foh! Fum! I smell the blood of a Christian man!" has delighted generations of children. She also includes stories of less familiar giants such as Sneezy Snatcher and Cucullin. Mrs. Manning-Sanders tells the stories with wit and good humor. There is not a word wasted: straightway you are at a giant's table sharing a feast conjured up merely by rapping on the table and saying, "The dinner of an emperor"; or taking bites from a loaf and seeing every mouthful turn to gold.
