The Giant and the Sea

The Giant and the Sea

A giant stands on the shore, watching the sea. She never moves, never speaks, until the day she turns to a little girl and says, ‘The sea is rising.’

The brave girl takes the message to the town. But when the people refuse to listen, the giant must find another way to save them.

Perfect for the children of the Climate Strike, this is a lyrical and deeply moving story about climate change, standing up for what you believe in, and the power of hope.

..charming, beautifully illustrated work that is a fable about climate change without being too polemical

A book that will hopefully awaken the giant within everyone, The Giant and the Sea is a powerful tale of climate change, self-belief and hope for a positive future. It is a fairytale for those who need to believe that we can change.

A lyrical and deeply moving story that touches on important themes for today's children, including climate change, standing up for what you believe in, and the power of hope.

Down by the seashore a giant stands, looking across the water, as she had been doing for a very long time. On the same shore a little girl plays and sings, and the giant is listening but never speaks. Then one day the giant breaks her silence, looks at the little girl and says, 'The sea is rising'. She asks the little girls to go to the city and tell the people if the dangers. But the people laugh, and many become angry. Nothing happens for many months but one day something does. After reading this stunningly beautiful book, with its lyrical text, I would hope that every child, and adult, can share my experience. For once it is read it will never be forgotten.
Merls Morcom, Good Reading magazine
Oh, wow! A HUGE Wow. A powerful and breathtaking wow... Lovers of picture books that make you think and reflect will adore The Giant and the Sea. It sits on the shelf with books like Our Little Inventor, Pea Pod Lullaby and Girl on Wire.

The Chronicle
The giant issue of climate change is translated for youngsters via powerful art by Melbourne's Rovina Cai alongside Trent Jamieson's simple, moving storyline. The giant watching over the sea warns of disaster as water levels rise. A little girl listens and urges people in the city to turn off the machine. But they laugh and ban the giant from the shore. Adults will be able to guess the rest of the story ... with its lesson for kids on standing up to protect our planet.
