The Green Giant
A beautiful eco-tale from the winner of the Batsford Prize
You’ve met the Iron Giant, the Big Friendly Giant and the Selfish Giant. Now meet the Green Giant!
A young girl, Bea, and her dog, Iris, are staying with her grandad in the country. Bea is bored, but Iris’s adventures lead them to the small and rusty old greenhouse next door.
Inside the greenhouse, Bea finds… a giant. A giant made entirely of plants and greenery. Bea is scared, but the giant reassures her and explains that he has escaped from the grey city.
Bea and the giant become friends, but can they do anything to make the grey city, and the world, a greener place?
A brilliant new picture book that highlights our concern for the environment, greening our cities, guerrilla gardening and making the world a better place.
Katie Cottle was the winner of the Batsford Prize 2017 and is a rising star in the picture book world.
'A timely tale of unexpected friendship with strong ecological themes.'
‘A striking debut picture book with a jaunty illustrative style and a gorgeous colour palette of vibrant greens, oranges and ochres. A great story to promote discussion in class or at home and perhaps to encourage a spot of guerrilla gardening.’
