The Giant King
By Kathleen T. Pelley
Illustrator: Maurie J. Manning
Proceeds from the sale of each book support CWLA and the Makumbi Children's Home for AIDS orphans in Zimbabwe.
Some people say that Rabbie, the carpenter’s son, is a dreamer, but Rabbie says he works from his heart, carving “not what is, but what could be.” When Rabbie goes to a distant town to sell his carvings, he finds the town besieged by a fierce and destructive giant. The townspeople despair, but Rabbie suggests that if the giant were treated like a king, he might behave like one. Readers will be charmed by the message of this heartwarming Scottish fable: that what is loved will reveal its loveliness.
Author Kathleen Pelley is a native of Scotland
