Since having baby girl I have found my love of kids books and The Giant and the Three Dwarves did not disappoint. We have quite a big collection of children’s books now, and I know as baby girl gets older she will love her collection as much as I do.

 

The giant and the three dwarves - book review and giveaway

Book Description

This is the story of three dwarves, Hop, Skip and Jump. Tired and hungry after a long journey, they knock at the door of a large, lonely house.

It belongs to a big hungry giant…..

My Review

My first impressions is that The Giant and the Three Dwarves seems a little scary for very small children. As I read through the book with baby girl I was right. Baby girl is only 11 months old so doesn’t understand what the book is about anyway. All she liked doing was turning the pages!

The story is well written and illustrated and will certainly grab children’s attention.

The three dwarves set out from home looking for work. After visiting many villages and with darkness closing in they decide they need somewhere to sleep. Hop, Skip and Jump come across a lonely looking house that un beknown to them belongs to a giant.

The rest of the book is about that one night and how the dwarves try to out with the giant who wants to eat them!

How do they do it? Will they succeed? You will have to read it to find out!

The giant and the three dwarves

The Giant and the Three dwarves is one for you to read with your children.

    I’d definately keep it for my little boy and I’m sure we’d read it lots of times. I’m blown away by some children’s illustrated books and what jumps out at me the most with this one is the intesity of the blue and yellow/orange hues which really make the story atmospheric.
