‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
My Daddy is a Giant
by Carl Norac
Age Range: Under_5
In his imagination a little boy sees his daddy as a giant – his dad is so tall that the clouds sleep over his shoulders, he sneezes like a hurricane, makes the ground shake when he runs and when he wants to cuddle him, he has to climb a ladder. Being a gentle giant, he loves his son with all his giant heart. This charming story
reveals a very positive and comforting feeling – dad is not a scary giant after all, and where the boy feels safest is in his dad’s arms. It focuses on the bond of love that link a father and a son.
Carl Norac’s lyrical text expresses the warmth of the father son relationship and is complemented by Ingrid Godon’s rich, soft pastel tone illustrations.
