The Lonely Giant
by Lloyd Burton
Orphaned at a tender age, the infant giant Albert is raised by servants in a ramshackle castle. At eighteen years old he strikes out to trace his lost family. He meets a questing Knight, joins a circus, falls in love and confronts dragons and monsters before learning the dreadful truth about his origins. Shocked, he abandons his search and resolves to make a life among the kindly circus folk.
