The Christmas Giant

By Steve Light
Illustrated by Steve Light

Creative thinking (and some clever recycling) help save the day in a sweet Christmas story that celebrates the shared pleasures of friendship.

Humphrey is a giant, and Leetree, his best friend, is an elf. Together they love making wrapping paper for all of Santa’s presents. But this year Santa has asked them to grow a Christmas tree, and the pair couldn’t be more excited! They take great care with their project, planting and watering, snipping and pruning. Finally, the tree is wrapped and ready, and Humphrey and Leetree set off to deliver it. But when disaster strikes, the giant and the elf must come up with a way to make things right. From a small idea comes a big plan — and a surprise no one in Christmastown will soon forget!

  • The story of the community Christmas tree that almost wasn't--and the giant and elf who save the day.
  • Heartwarming story of cooperation and creativity. Features a gloroius handmade Christmas tree fashioned from found objects.
  • Scenes of Santa's workshop, gorgeous Christmas details, and the story of an unlikely friendship give this beautifully produced book all of the makings of a holiday classic.
