Happy Publication Day to Sophie Ambrose and The Lonely Giant

We are wishing a very happy Publication Day to Sophie Ambrose and her debut picture book The Lonely Giant!

The forest giant likes nothing better than smashing, bashing and pulling up trees. But when all the animals run away in fear, the giant finds himself so very sad and lonely.

How he misses the crackling warmth of a fire; how he misses the sweet, melodious songs of the birds! Can the lonely giant find a way to bring back the woodland bloom, and even make some friends?

The Lonely Giant was highly commended in the Macmillan Prize for Illustration in 2013, and we are delighted to get our hands on this beautiful story of friendship, nature and love for the world around us.
