Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant

Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant

Reg Down




Tiptoes Lightly is a fairy who lives in an acorn high in the branches of a Great Oak Tree. Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant follows her adventures, and those of her friends, through springtime at Farmer John's. On the way Ompliant the Elephant has his leg pulled by Chit-Chat the Chipmunk; Tiptoes sails down to the sea and brings Spinner the Dolphin back with her to see flowers for the very first time; Tom Nutcracker tracks giant footprints into the forest but gets himself treed, and Meadow Mouse almost gets eaten by Tiger the Cat.

Many tales and legends are also told: Miranda the spring pixie remembers how the little blue and yellow forget-me-not came to be; a rock spirit reveals how his rock ended up lying in the middle of the forest so far away from the Snowy Mountains (because of Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant, of course!), and Mr. Rabbit tells the Jeremy Mouse and his mouselings the Legend of Oak Knoll Warren.

Big-Stamp Two-Toes the Barefoot Giant is lavishly illustrated by the artist-author. These stories are reverent, humorous, sanguine and even, at times, spiritual. They are innocent and magical tales, suitable for reading to young children or for young children to read.
