Book review – The Smartest Giant in Town, by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler


smartestA gentle, heart-warming story about a scruffy giant who tries hard to smarten himself up, proving in the end that what is important is on the inside, and that is what true friends really care about.

Lovely illustrations with lots of expressive, secondary characters to discuss and an emphasis on phonics and rhyme.
