Little Giants, Nathan
and Davie, with Love

         There was once an amiable Giant who lived, as most giants do, in a big, black, granite castle on the top of a tremendous mountain. And since he was an amiable (really friendly) Giant and he was lonesome living all alone in his big castle, sometimes he came down from his mountain top to visit the little people who lived in the pretty village in the valley.
     But the villagers did not understand the purpose of his visit. They would slam their doors in the face of the amiable Giant and shutter their windows. . . . . . .
