The Seasons of a Giant, by Pamela Hartley, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Something's been picking off the cattle on Izzy's family farm.  They've lost one cow every full-moon for some time now.  But when Izzy tries to confront her parents about a beast in the woods, they just shoo her off, suggesting it's only her imagination.  Then one night she overhears them talking, and their hushed whispers confirm her suspicions.  There's a really big something lurking in the oaks just beyond their house and someone needs to take action before they lose their farm.  That very night Izzy sees a monster, up close and personal, peering into her bedroom window.  So, she sneaks out to get a better look at the elusive beast.

Pamela Hartley's The Seasons of a Giant is a delightfully imaginative tale that will entertain and inspire young audiences.  Izzy is a kind-hearted and brave protaganist who makes a great role model for youngsters.  When she befriends the giant her loyalty will be challenged. A unique plot twist keeps readers guessing right up to the suspenseful finish. Recommended for home and school libraries, The Seasons of a Giant earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
