“I remembered, Mama had said there were giants, strong and tall, and that one was looking after me. I needed to see one, to believe.”
A young girl, grieving the loss of her mother, strives to find the giant that her mother promised would look after her. But there are no such things as giants-not real giants . . . or are there? She wants so desperately to believe that it seems as if she's always just missed one. Can she dream her larger-than-life guardian into reality? While she dreams, life on the farm with her father goes on. With lyrical prose her story unfolds-the seasons change, crops are planted, summer turns to fall, and the harvest is brought in. Throughout, one constant remains. The young girl does have a giant looking out for her. He's been with her all along.
The Giant is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn Inc. The app is based on Claire Ewart’s book by the same name.
