The Smartest Giant In Town

Written by Julia Donaldson & illustrated by Axel Scheffler
George was very happy being the scruffiest giant in town. But one day, when he sees a shop stocking giant-size clothes, he decides it's time to update his image. With smart clothes, George is a new man. However, as he goes home, he meets various animals who desperately need his help! This story is a lovely way to talk about the concept of kindness with children.
