A story of mythic proportions

"There are none so great, so great as me!" MacMurtrey the giant boasts. But all his strength can't make him happy as long as there's a bird or beast, a hill or tree he hasn't conquered. Then MacMurtrey sets out to wall up the sea itself. Has the strongest giant who ever lived finally met his match?

The mystical, majestic artwork of Marc Sutherland will delight children as they learn a gentle message about community and what's truly important in life.

The formerly foreboding illustrations then become a good deal sunnier, as smiles replace the villagers' tears, and the once doleful faces that composed the waves in the sea become cheerful.
