Review by: Joy Smith on Dec. 2, 2011 :
The Giant who Woke Up in the Middle of the Night is the tale of a lonely giant. He feels so alone that he's even afraid in his own home--of the dark and the noises--and finally of the invisible creature who won't show itself. Well, would you? But the giant shares a bowl full of milk with the voice every night until he learns the truth. And he's not the only one who learns the truth... I enjoyed the story because I was curious too; and I also enjoyed the illustrations, especially the one at the end. Perfect!
