Daisy and the Trouble with Giants




Daisy's having trouble with giants – cheeky, extremely readable and funny young fiction


Fee Fi Fo Fum! What has Daisy gone and done?! Daisy has decided she wants to meet a REAL giant! If Daisy met a real giant he'd pick Daisy up and put her on his shoulder and they'd have giant adventures! They'd eat crunchy creams as big as tractor tyres, and if she got thirsty, they'd have giant lemonades out of giant straws. It would be sooooo gooood! Trouble is . . . if you want to meet a giant you need a magic bean. And finding magic beans can be troublesome . . .

The trouble with giants is they really shouldn’t live at the top of magic beanstalks. If giants didn’t live at the top of magic beanstalks then Daisy is convinced that she wouldn't have got into big trouble AGAIN!
