Sarah Courtauld. The Gigantic Giant Goof-Up. (Buckle and Squash series, book 2) Feiwel and Friends, 2015. $14.99. ISBN 978-1-250-05279-7. 187 p. Gr. 2 – 5. P9Q9
Laugh out loud hijinks ensue as Courtauld weaves a deft fractured fairy tale of two feuding sisters who both can’t get what they want, a goat who eats everything, a magic snail who grants wishes, and a giant who takes up the sisters’ farm house and turns it into a dollhouse for his daughter.
Verdict: You want this book in your collection. The writing is clever and humorous. The book is quick paced and the jokes are of a sufficient depth to delight many levels of readers.
