ABOUT GIANT TESS
Giant Tess invites readers on one giant girl’s journey to find acceptance when she ultimately discovers her very differences are what make her remarkable.
Tess has a BIG problem.
She’s a giant with an enormous wish to be like everyone else in the city of Myth-hattan. When she gives up on ever fitting in, she meets a friend just her size, and the two team up for a daring rescue. Can these misfits save the day—and the big city parade?
This reassuring and heartwarming tall tale reminds us that heroes come in all shapes and sizes and will empower young readers nervous about fitting in.
ABOUT SMASHY TOWN
Fans of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and I Stink! will love this rhythmic and lively picture book from the popular creators of Trashy Town.
Swing the ball,
hit the wall!
Smash, smash, smash!
With a turn of his crane and a swing of his wrecking ball, Mr. Gilly knocks down the old buildings. He smashes through brick and wood. He crashes through stone and glass. Then, with a push from his bulldozer, Mr. Gilly cleans it all up to make room for something brand-new!
Featuring lively text from Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha and dynamic art from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino, Smashy Town is a perfect read-aloud that will delight young vehicle lovers.
