Product Description
The Giants and the Joneses by Julia Donaldson is one of my all-time favorite books for 2nd-5th graders. It is a gripping, funny fantasy-adventure that is fabulous for developing reading comprehension strategies through the author’s imagined language of Groilish.

Giant girl Jumbeelia kidnaps three human children and brings them up a beanstalk to her home in the giants’ land of Groil. This engaging story follows the three ‘iggly plops’, Colette, Steven, and Poppy, as they try to escape from the well-meaning Jumbeelia and find their way home.

This book makes a great novel unit for the whole class or for small reading groups. It works well with fourth and fifth grade independent reading levels, but can be easily used as a read aloud or for advanced literature circles in second and third grade.
