It's Only Ink!
Giants, Ghosts and Goblins
Author John Matthews and illustrator Giovanni Manna team up again for another exciting tale of medieval times and legends.
"Giants, Ghosts and Goblins" is a fast-moving, energetic anthology of stories from around the world. Meet the Ghost with Two Faces, the Cheyenne tale of a ghost who wanted to marry, and discover a strange Australian creature (half calf-half sea) called the Bunyip. You will also share in the adventures of a funny Danish goblin who makes a life-changing decision, and a farmer from China who finds out the identity of the mysterious person he's been sharing evening wine with. Scotland, West Africa, Ireland, Siberia, and Norwegian tales await you in "Giants, Ghosts and Goblins" by John Matthews.
This fun, whimsical and beautifully illustrated children's folk tale book was a delight to read to my children. I highly recommend it for children everywhere!
