Some people say that Rabbie, the carpenter's son, is a dreamer, but Rabbie says he works from his heart, carving "not what is, but what could be." When Rabbie goes to a distant town to sell his carvings, he finds the town besieged by a fierce and destructive giant. The townspeople despair, but Rabbie suggests that if the giant were treated like a king, he might behave like one. Readers will be charmed by the message of this heartwarming Scottish fable: that what is loved will reveal its loveliness.

Author Kathleen Pelley, a native of Scotland and a former teacher, resides in Englewood, Colorado. Illustrator Maurie Manning lives in Carlsbad, California.
