A charming adventure story by Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson. Every giant knows beanstalks and little persons don't exist. Almost every giant, anyway ...When Jumbeelia's curiosity leads her to a real-live bimplestonk at the edgeland of Groil and down, down, down into Colette, Stephen and Poppy's lives, the children find themselves in BIG trouble! How will the three iggly plops ever get home? In The Giants and the Joneses Julia Donaldson has created a page-turning larger than life adventure, turning a fairytale on its head. That Jack was so wicked, climbing a beanstalk to steal everything from the hen to the harp to some money. Julia has long been a household name thanks to her raft of best-selling picture books, and this tale is idea for readers who have enjoyed The Gruffalo as a young child.
