DLTK's Crafts for Kids
The Picture-Book Giant

by Evaleen Stein
 

Once there was a fierce, defiant,
Greedy, grumpy, grizzly giant
   In the pages of a picture-book, and he
Sometimes screamed, in sudden rages,
"I must jump out from these pages,
   For this life's a much too humdrum one for me!
             Fiddle-dee!
   Yes, this life's a quite too quiet one for me!"

So one rainy day he did it,
Took the picture-book and hid it,
   Stamped his foot, and shouting loudly,
              "Now I'm free!"
Boldly started out, forgetting
That he could not stand a wetting!
He was just a paper giant, don't you see?
              Dearie me!
Just a gaudy, picture giant, don't you see?
