Quillow's tranquil village is turned upside down when Hunder the giant thunders into town. Each day he makes demands of the people - a pie baked with a thousand apples, chocolate as high and as wide as a spinning wheel. As the burden of Hunder's demands increases, the town council decides something must be done! But neither the locksmith, the candlemaker, the blacksmith nor any other council member can think of what to do. Clever little Quillow, the town toymaker, becomes a hero when he outwits the giant to save the village. Using intelligence and courage to overcome brute strength, Quillow offers a universal message that speaks to children generation after generation. And really, the illustrations by Kellogg are over the top gorgeous. Detailed, colorful and dynamic. Book is made of deep green paper over hard boards with light green cloth spine. Full color dust jacket. Illustrated endpages. 56 pages. The extraordinary price of only $9.00 is offered cuz the publisher was releasing this title in paperback and we got a great deal. Passing along the savings! While supply lasts.
