5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully stretches your child's imagination in wonderful dimensions, 18 July 2006
This review is from: The Giants and the Joneses (Paperback)
This is a great book - I bought it from a catalogue as the concept appealed to me and you can't go far wrong with a Julia Donaldson. In a nutshell, a big giant girl climbs down a beanstalk and takes a few human children home and puts them to live in the dolls house from which they escape, adventuring on the way. It's a lovely story for both boys and girls from about 5 and one they'll keep re-reading til they get to secondary school. I read it to my daughter (5 and a half) who loved it. There are pictures at the beginning of each chapter, enough to give her a handle to pin her own imagination too. She was completely taken with the idea of another language, especially one quite so silly (though guesssable in context) as `iggly plop' for humans, strimpchogger, bobbaleely and squerple, for lawn mower, baby and worm respectively. If you think you child would like the borrowers biut thats a bit old-fashioned, this is equally appealing but written for today's children. Superb!
