Waterstones Says

An inspired riff on the evergreen Gulliver’s Travels, Michael Morpurgo’s latest masterwork interweaves Swift’s classic parable with a tale of the desperate migrant crisis that is very much of the moment. Typically powerful and emotionally authentic, Boy Giant is one of the most resonant children’s books of the year.

A stunning new story of hope, humanity and high-seas adventure for children and adults everywhere from Sir Michael Morpurgo, the nation's favourite storyteller and multi-million copy bestselling author of WAR HORSE.

"We were the truth of our own story.
Me, and the two tiny people on my shoulder, in the middle of the sea..."

War has forced Omar and his mother to leave their home in Afghanistan and venture across the sea to Europe. When their boat sinks, and Omar finds himself alone, with no hope of rescue, it seems as if his story has come to an end.

But it is only just beginning.

Because in the end, a little hope makes a big difference...

A thrilling adventure inspired by the classic story of Gulliver's Travels, this is also a gripping modern narrative of rescue and refuge, from a writer at the height of his powers. A book about breaking down walls, at a time when many are trying to build them. And a timeless reminder of humanity's infinite capacity for good... even when those humans are very small indeed.
