Product description

This rip-roaring, read-aloud delight follows a giant's toilet roll as it goes on a crazy journey through town, leaving havoc in its wake. What will the townsfolk do with all the enormous sheets of paper? They could build a paper plane, or make 100s of pairs of pants...But will there be any paper left for the giant in his time of need?

Review quote

"A mischievous light touch" -- Dinah Hall The Daily Telegraph "Combines the fun of a giant's runaway toilet roll with the fantastic line: "Fe fi fo fum, what can I use to wipe my...?" The Sunday Express "This is a fun rollercoaster story for young children with a jaunty rhyming text. With lovely, colourful pictures and even a gentle environmental reminder about wasting paper, it's sure to make children giggle." Booktrust "A giant's toilet roll goes on a crazy journey in a very funny, typically cheeky romp with an environmental theme." -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller "Snappy rhyming couplets accompanied by textured painterly images and a subtly imbued, humorously delivered, envionmental message." Junior Magazine
