Publisher Description

The 20th anniversary edition of the giant-classic of an adventure story for young readers from bestselling author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson.

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.

‘Every night at bedtime, millions of children – pyjamas on, teeth reluctantly brushed – curl up to read or listen to a Donaldson story’ – Guardian

‘Children will love this miniaturised adventure . . . it's set to be a giant hit’ –The Herald
