The Cautionary Tale of the Childe of Hale

by Rachel Lyon, illustrated by Vanina Starkoff - £6.99  Maverick Arts Publishing (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781848860957 | ISBN 10: 1848860951

For a young giant in a tiny cottage, an invitation to the Royal Palace seems too good to miss. But can lavish new clothes and a big bed make up for everything he leaves behind?
The Cautionary Tale of the Childe of Hale is inspired by the adventures of a real-life giant, born near Liverpool in the sixteenth Century. Author Rachel Lyon used poetic licence to soften the historical accounts of his adventures for children, ensuring his legend will continue to grow just as the man himself did!
