A giant stands on the shore, watching the sea. She never moves, never speaks, until the day she turns to a little girl and says, 'The sea is rising.' The brave girl takes the message to the town, but the people ignore her desperate pleas and banish the giant from their shores. But when the sea rises, threatening to wipe out the city, the giant returns to rescue as many people as she can and take them to make a new home on higher ground. And there, on a new shore, she stands watch once again. A lyrical and deeply moving story that touches on important themes for today's children.

Ages 4+.
