A giant-sized adventure story from bestselling author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson.Perfect for fans of David Walliams, Matt Haig and Ben MIller.
Every giant knows beanstalks and little persons don’t exist. Almost every giant, anyway …
Young giant, Jumbeelia, loves the stories of the iggly plop, Jack, who climbed up the bimblestonk and was chased back down again by a giant. So she grows her own bimblestonk, climbs down and collects up the unsuspecting Colette, Stephen and Poppy into a bag and carried off back up the beanstalk to play with her three new toys.
In The Giants and the Joneses, former Children’s Laureate, Julia Donaldson, has created a page-turning, hilariously funny and larger than life adventure, turning the traditional fairytale unceremoniously on its head.
