Kids book launch — The Straw Giant

The blurb

There is a field afar that holds an incredible secret... a giant lives there who is made of straw. One winter, grumpy and miserable with his cold surroundings, the Straw Giant chases away all the other animals in his field. That is, until the Crow arrives and begins to leave him little gifts each morning. A sweet and subtle friendship emerges — but will the Crow be able to last the Winter Solstice? Will their friendship defy the cold clutches of winter and last out?

Copies of the book can be bought here (or at The Book Lounge on the day).
