Off the coast of Ireland there lies an island. It looks just like a giant sleeping in the sea. But what if it really is a giant - and what if, one day, the sleeping giant wakes up? The Sleeping Giant, first published in 1991, quickly became a huge favourite with children all over Ireland and it hit the annual bestseller lists again when the paperback edition was published in 1998. The O'Brien Press are delighted to bring out this new edition for a new generation of children to enjoy.
