Decent entry into the copycat Gnomes books. It's a bit scattershot writing-wise, but cool illustrations and some decent chunks of history.

In the spirit of Poortvliet's Gnomes, this book is genre-busting and super fun. Beautifully imagined and illustrated.

Not what I expected. It has nothing to do really with the lifestyle of giants. It's more of a bunch of short stories about giants.
If you are looking for that, then it would be a perfect book. But considering I was looking for facts and info about the mythical creature.... Disappointing..

I'm not sure how to rate this one. Story(ies): 2 stars because they were shorts taken from novels like Gulliver's Travels and fables like Jack the giant killer. Stuff I'd heard before. Illustrations: 5 stars! Made reading the words easier.
