KIRKUS REVIEW

Ralph and Timmy speculate that, if they had a giant, they'd let him sleep in a used volcano or take him swimming in the ocean (""you could stand on his head and see Africa!"") or let him pick apples from the tallest trees in Mr. Storrow's orchard or sit on his knee and teach him to box. But the question's liberating effect on the imagination is squelched by the moronic appearance of the pink-faced, overalled giant and the flat, monotonous green and red backgrounds. Gawky.
