Stories about giants pervade folklore around the world—from "The Epic of Gilgamesh" to "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman." The winner of the 2005 San Diego Book Award for Best Young Adult & Children's Nonfiction, Giants describes the outsized creatures and their encounters—both good and bad—with gods and human beings. It includes an overview of giants in popular culture, including their use as sports team mascots, motion picture villains and advertising icons.

Critical Praise from School Library Journal: These four volumes describe the mythological and legendary origins of each monster, as well as representations of the creatures in modern film, television, and toys. Numerous full-color and black-and-white reproductions of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and movie and television stills are placed carefully in the appropriate spots within the texts. The books are clearly written and contain fascinating information that will satisfy both casual browsers and serious report writers.—Ginny Gustin, Sonoma County Library System, Santa Rosa, CA
