About The Book

"Back some time ago in Appalachia, when folks still had to worry about giants and unicorns and such, there lived a boy named Jack."

Jack's caught in a downpour one day and finds a farmhouse in which to spend the night. But there's something funny about the big giant-woman and the big two-headed giant-man who own the place. What are they up to?

How Jack outwits those big old giants and saves his own hide is the heart of this funny tall tale from the award-winning creator of Fearless Jack.
