The Giant

written by Marisa López Soria & illustrated by Emilio Urberuaga

el gigante coverWhen Mei met the giant, her little body shuddered even if he placed Blue Dragon into her hands. What a gigantic giant! Would he eat her first, or would he prefer to gobble up Blue Dragon? How scary! Mei doesn’t trust him, of course, nor can she be fooled just like that. A touching and very special picture book about adoption through the eyes of little Mei. Emilio Urberuaga who is famous for his illustrations of the character Manolito Gafotas. In 2011 Emilio Urberuaga received the Premio Nacional de Illustración from the Ministry of Culture in Spain.
