Muncle Trogg, the tiny but determined giant, is worried.
His home on Mount Grumble is at risk from being destroyed when the mountain shows signs of erupting, but all his fellow giants can think about is celebrating the departure of the smalling humans from down the mountain.
Luckily for Muncle, his friend Emily hasn't abandoned him - and she has an idea. The giants might not listen to a little giant but they will sit up if a donkey - the wisest, most wondrous animal they know - makes an eeaw-mously important appearance.
Affectionate and charming sequel to the 2010 winner of The Times/Chicken House Children's Fiction Competition.
‘Don’t drop me, Gritt!’ shrieked Muncle, bouncing on his younger brother’s huge shoulders.
‘Sorry,’ puffed Gritt, ‘but Pa’s at the Smalling farm already. I don’t want to miss seeing him catch an ox. It’ll be so exciting!’
