Giants in the Land – Book Review

When I first saw this book, I thought it would be a book for my son, who is eleven. But then I read a little bit about it and decided to give a try.
Giants in the Land is about a village of hard workers who have always depended on the someone else for protection and extra work. But what happens when suddenly those you depend on vanish?
The main character, Thomas takes the lead and goes on a journey that will help him discover what he and his people really need! Courage, strength and determination!
This book is an easy read and I enjoyed it. I like the author, Clark Burbidge’s  writing style and am looking forward to more books!
There are giants in the land.
And it has always been so as far as anyone can remember. They work side-by-side with the people, and whenever there is a job too difficult or a threat too great they are there to step in. The giants’ presence gives the townspeople a special confidence about life. But they have become much more dependant on the giants than they realize. One morning the people discover the giants have mysteriously disappeared. Fear and panic grip the town. Someone must find them and bring them back!
Thomas, a young farmer, volunteers and sets out alone on a great journey of danger and discovery. Thomas learns the true nature of giants and what it means for him and his people. Join Thomas in his timeless rite of passage and learn what it means to become something more than you have been, why it is necessary in life, and how to do it.
