"Fee!" he said, and "Fi!" he said, and "Fo!" he said and "Fum!" Look out children, the Giant of Jum is grumpy and hungry and he's off in search of a tasty snack. And the tastiest of all is a boy known as Jack! But Jack and his friends don't see a scary giant, they see a magically tall man - a man who can fetch lost balls and rescue cats from trees! Perhaps this hungry giant is softer than he seems... An incredible rhyming text and a brilliant, big-hearted twist on a classic fairy tale, this book sees the launch of a major new picture book pairing: the uniquely talented author and poet, Elli Woollard, and award-winning illustrator, Benji Davies. Also contains an important message for all: don't eat kids, eat cake!

This story is a modern twist to the Jack and the Beanstalk classic. A hungry giant meets a boy called Jack. The giant of Jum is grumpy, he wants a tasty snack (children). In the end, the giant turns out to be nice and he finds something tasty to eat instead of children, so there is a happy ending. The text rhymes, so it flows well. Its an easy read, the illustrations are brilliant and it is an amusing book. I really enjoyed reading it, a great book for girls or boys my age
