Pintoo walks home from school one evening, all alone. He is not afraid until the sun begins to set rapidly. Suddenly, he feels himself being lifted up. . .up, up. . . by a giant! Pintoo shudders when he looks into his face. Now, what? Pintoo and the Giant does a spin on a common fairytale figure and effortlessly captures the spirit of a little boy’s vivid imagination and curious nature. Ashwin’s warm water colour tones bring to life the perky Pintoo and the gigantic giant, with humour and heart.
