What do loud-sighin’, eye-rollin’, yawny-bored giants do for fun? Play giant steps, of course. And when you’re a giant, the whole world is your playground! The fifth giant is it and his four friends run far and fast in all directions, taking them to the four corners of the globe and back—over jaggy tip mountains and yawn mouth canyons, through red stripe deserts, dark tangle jungles and herds of trumpetin’, thumpetin’ wild animals.

Join the giants in their hilarious version of a familiar childhood game, where the outcome all depends on that fifth giant, all alone on the mountaintop counting ONE . . . TWO . . . THREE . . .
