Once There Were Giants, Paperback / softback Book

Once There Were Giants Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Penny Dale

Paperback / softback


Once there was a baby in the house - and to that baby, Mum and Dad and Jill and John and Uncle Tom were giants.

But little by little, that baby grew up - until she became a giant too!

Martin Waddell says of the book, "Small children live in a world designed for big people.

I wrote this story to help them understand it, and the idea of growing older."
