A Giant Comes by Aj Saxsma
One day a boy delivers a very important package to an elderly man who refuses receipt…
Desperate to fulfill the sender’s request, the boy demands to know why and the elderly man weaves for the boy the tale of a traveler who brings a village a grim warning and of the skeptical orphan he takes under his wing.
As the warning disrupts the village’s routine, the orphan begins to wonder if there are worse things than the giant they say comes.
A Giant Comes is a powerful and moving tale written in a distinctive style seldom seen now that invokes the fables and parables of old with themes as tragically modern as today’s breaking news. It is refreshingly unexpected.
