Staff Reviews

Wow, this picture book caught me off guard. A seemingly simple fable that was unexpectedly moving. It's about embracing the unknown and the possibilities that come along with it. This would be a great book for a kid anxious about trying something new or who's entering a period of transition or uncertainty. [Adrienne]

— From Giant on the Shore


A tender fable about overcoming loneliness and welcoming new possibilities.

A giant stands on the shore of a secluded city: a place where no trains pass through, where you can hear the sound of birds, and the air smells of bread. What would happen if the giant entered the city? Would the people welcome him? Would they invite him to play in their games? Would they tell him stories and teach him to dance? Would he need lawn mowers to trim his beard and power cables to jump rope? Or would he simply return to the waves?

Featuring poignant, acrylic paintings by award-winning illustrator Azul L pez, Giant on the Shore is a tale of vulnerability and belonging that explores the enormity of self-doubt and the tremendous potential in taking risks.
