In a corner of the world there lives a woman, a giantess. Nobody knows exactly where she is, but there is no doubt she exists. When she is sad, she moans and the wind’s howling shake the woods and enter the houses. The giantess represents the nature, its beauty, strength, delicacy, power, rage and –most of all– her consolation ability. Guia Risaris’s words create an evocative book that invites the reader to think about the nature that surrounds us, and of whom we are a part. Beatriz Martín Terceño’s hypnotic illustrations create –with great liberty in the strokes, lines and compositions– the giantess’s world, and fill it in with people, and among them a helpless child, who will keep moving from one page to the other until he becomes the recipient of the giantess’s greatest gift. A delicate book, that invites the reader to contemplation, and to take pleasure in this world.
