The Christmas Giant
Writer, illustrator, storyteller and pen lover, Steve Light is introducing his latest book, The Christmas Giant, in time for the holidays. The colorful 32-page hardcover book tells the story of Humphrey the giant and Leetree, his elfin best friend. Together they make wrapping paper for Santa's presents, but this year, the two have been tasked to grow a Christmas tree. Creative thinking and some clever recycling help save the day when disaster strikes. The book is perfect for kids of all ages, but is primarily targeted at 3- to 6-year-olds. It is priced at $15.99; find more information from the book's publisher, Candlewick. I bought a few copies as gifts, and Steve was kind enough to sign one for the newest member of my family when I saw him recently in NYC. I am delighted, since it is truly a beautiful book that will warm your heart.
