Giant Jim and the Hurricane

When Giant Jim comes to town with his giant saxophone and his giant hen, people are terrified they’ll be squashed or eaten alive! Jim’s not the dangerous kind of giant, but he’s just so big that he seems to cause nothing but trouble – especially when he goes house-hunting! He’s so big that the townspeople tell him that he’ll have to leave, even though all the children love him. But when a terrible hurricane strikes, Giant Jim is the only one who can help…

A big-hearted comedy from Jeremy Strong, the author who makes everybody laugh their socks off!
