A Hero's Journey

For hundreds of years giants have helped Thomas' village, but one morning they disappear. The townspeople are frantic. They can see a track showing where the giants went, but no one is brave enough to leave the village to find the giants until Thomas steps up. He doesn't want to be a hero. He doesn't want to leave his wife and daughter, but it's the right thing to do.

This tale is a true hero's journey. Thomas follows the giant's path, experiences adventures, and learns valuable lessons. Although the book is written for children, it can also be enjoyed by adults making it a perfect read aloud book. The lessons are easy to understand and make good discussion topics.

The illustrations are delightful They make Thomas and his adventures come alive. I highly recommend this book for all ages.

I reviewed this book for PR by the Book.
