Jat is a boy who wants more from life than collecting coal from the Fire Sea. Newton is a misfit giant, cast out of his homeland for his love of science and reading. Brought together by chance, the two become the best of friends. But when enemy giants threaten to ruin everything, it's up to Jat and Newton to defend Jat's village, leading to the journey of a lifetime. In the timeless tradition of The BFG and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, John Himmelman blends adventure and humour to create an unforgettable story of friendship.
