What's The Stinky Giant About

Publisher Summary

Pepper and Jake love herding sheep in the little valley where they live. But there’s a problem– a big problem. Urk, a giant who lives on a nearby mountain, is big and stinky and doesn’t care that dumping dirty laundry water in the nearby stream causes a flood down below every single week. So Pepper and Jake hike to Urk’s mountaintop lair to confront him. But there’s no reasoning with a giant, especially one who gives cryptic puzzles to solve. If the kids can solve it, Urk will move away. If not, Pepper and Jake (and their sheep) will be the featured ingredients in Urk’s next bowl of smelly soup!
