The Princess and the Giant

by Caryl Hart

Princess Sophie is fed up. She’s EXHAUSTED and it’s all because that grumpy old giant can’t sleep – his stomps and stamps keep everyone awake ALL night. But Princess Sophie is a resourceful sort of girl and, as she reads her favourite book of fairy tales, she wonders if she might just have the answer. She bravely climbs the beanstalk and takes a tasty bowl of porridge, a teddy to cuddle and even a cosy blanket – all to help the giant sleep. But, oh dear, nothing works until finally Sophie hits upon the perfect thing – the giant needs a bedtime story! Phew! Everyone lives (and sleeps) happily ever after but when Sophie then teaches the giant how to read himself, it is the most perfect ending of all.
