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... Winner of The Times/Chicken House Children's Fiction Competition 2010, Muncle Trogg is the charming upside down fairytale about a tiny giant who saves the day.
