Giant Tales Gallery

The illustrations on this gallery were created for Giant Tales, retold by Fiona Waters and published by Chrysalis Children’s Books in 2004.

“Myths and legends of giants appear in many different cultures, and acclaimed anthologist Fiona Waters has gathered together a selection of her favorites here: giants friendly and frightening, bumbling and brave, male and female-and the inevitable escapades and adventures that ensue. From Cornwall to Jamaica, Italy to North America, and many places in between, giants stride across the world and leave huge legends behind them. Amanda Hall’s stunning artwork is highly decorative and carefully researched.”
