Giants live on top of Mount Grumble, hidden from humans below.
But not all of them are big. Muncle Trogg is so small that he's laughed at by the others for being human-sized. Fed up, he decides to take a look at the 'Smallings' that he's meant to look like.
But what he discovers is very surprising indeed.
Im loving this book and flew through it but as i speed read, i decided to read it again so that i could do my review.
It is a great book for the young adults age group and has great visualization with the wording and occasional picture that is in the book. I do find that the small type is hard to read when your tired but this doesn't really affect reading the book much.
I do feel sorry for Muncle Trogg being the size of a smalling but this book shows that sometimes being small is a good thing. I really enjoyed him flying on the dragon though and visiting the smalling world the first time.....
This is a standard size book shelf book and have already had offers to take it off my hands should i ever want to get rid of it or loan it out....
I personally would advise that younger readers don't just sit and read the book, they pace themselves. With fantastic books like this coming out, who needs tv??

What will it take to settle him? Patience, cuddles and mudmilk.
