Annotations for Giants And The Joneses


Baker & Taylor
Having heard all the stories about the iggly plops who ventured into the giants' land, a curious young giantess decides to travel down to their land for a surprise visit and, after capturing three iggly plops, returns home with her prize and awaits to hear the great tales her new friends are sure to have.

When Jumbeelia, an eight-year-old giant, climbs down a beanstalk and collects some "iggly plops," the little people of children's stories, she treats them like toys, unaware that she is endangering their lives.

"All wet!" said Poppy.
"Yuk!" said Stephen. "Was that a kiss?"
Before Colette could answer, it was her turn. She was lifted up and brought toward the shining pink lips. She closed her eyes. The next second she felt a dampness all over her cheek and an explosion in her ear.
She dared herself to open her eyes, and caught a glimpse of a hairy nostril before she was lowered again and pushed through a door.


 
Tiny people and a GIANT adventure!

     Jumbeelia the young giantess loves to hear the old story about the iggly plop who climbed up the bimplestonk to the giants' land of Groil. Then, one day, she throws a bimple over the edge of Groil.
 
     Down, down, down Jumbeelia climbs--right down into the land of the iggly plops, where she discovers Colette, Poppy, and Stephen Jones; puts them into her canvas bag; and carries them back to Groil.
 
     Soon the children find themselves shut in her dollhouse, with no visible means of escape. With danger surrounding them at every turn, the children must use all their wits to survive and figure out a way to get back home . . .
