|What fun to talk to kids about stories and writing and life!|
|Star of the show – Carving of The Giant King|
|A fan of The Giant King carving|
One of the teachers at a recent school visit, mentioned that her children were unfamiliar with the whole notion of what a carving was, and so she was pleased I had brought along my beloved carving of The Giant King to show them. When The Giant King was first published, a friend of mine, had a friend who was a wood carver, and so he asked him to make a carving of the Giant for me. Children love this carving, and I like to tell them to take a good look at the giant’s expression – pleased and proud in a good way – why? Because someone believes in HIS GOODness. He is holding the carving that Rabbie made of him – not as he is, but as he could be – a king sitting on his throne with a crown and a cape. We all need cheerleaders in life, someone who believes in our goodness!
