If We Were Giants
If We Were Giants is a book about how clever tree folk defeat the enemy. This is a story about a girl who was driven out of her home. She is adopted by tree folk and learns new ways of living. Kirra helps the tree folks fight off their enemy using giants. The story is entertaining, and it made sense. The best part was when they are fighting the takers. I really liked the characters because they seemed real. The story is very slow in the beginning but gets better when you get to the action. It is well written and the language flowed pretty well. There are no pictures in the book. The moral of the story is that you need to let your grief out to move on and be happy. I think eleven and older who are good readers and enjoy medieval themes would like it. The book could make a good series. The book was great, but if you like a lot of action, then probably not. It was sad in the beginning but got better later.
