Master storyteller Eric Carle spins an old-fashioned fairy tale in this exciting novelty book packed with flaps and diecuts. Two children pretend they unwittingly wander into the garden of a giant who is hungry and looking for something tasty to eat. So begins a suspenseful chase through the multiple trapdoors, secret passages, and underground tunnels in the giant's house until the children are safely back home. Eric Carle has brilliantly illustrated the story with flaps that work on both sides of the page, giving the story an added level of suspense and excitement. First published in a slightly different format, and not available since 1978, this new edition is a must-have for Eric Carle fans everywhere.
