Summary

The Smartest Giant in Town audiobook, read by actors Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter and Steven Pacey, brings to life the friendly giant and all the little animals in this tale from the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. This audiobook edition also includes a song and a read-along track.

George wished he wasn't the scruffiest giant in town. So when he sees a new shop selling giant-size clothes, he decides it's time for a new look: smart trousers, smart shirt, stripy tie, shiny shoes. Now he's the smartest giant in town...until he bumps into some animals who desperately need his help - and his clothes!

Perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime - or any time at all!

My daughter loves this.

Downloaded for my daughter for long car journeys (she has a selection of these)- one of her all time favourite especially due to Jim Carter's performance.
