If only fairy tales were real! Such a wish begins this cute picture book as Hector and his friends set out in search of a giant. Detailed illustrations bring the five anthropomorphic animal characters to life as they pursue their quest and make a new friend. The text hints at just the right level of suspense for toddlers and preschoolers. This picture book may feel a touch formulaic to more experienced readers, but young children will enjoy it, particularly if they are part of a family that enjoys—and reads—fairy tales and fantasy regularly.
