    1. Read a Dutch edition. Five stars for the illustrations, three for the writing. A haphazard collection of story snippets, fictional history and bits and pieces of literature. It's never coherent or anywhere near the quality of Poortvliet's Gnomes. The illustrations make this book worthwhile.

    2. Decent entry into the copycat Gnomes books. It's a bit scattershot writing-wise, but cool illustrations and some decent chunks of history.Edition 0-8109-0955-316NOTE: Og, King of Bashan waded next to the Ark during flood 17The distance between the brain and the heart is a crucial factor and the lowering of the head below heart level could lead to blackouts and burst blood vessels. Poor circulation of the blood, particularly in the extremities, was also a general malaise of the species.34NOTE: [...]

    3. Eh Not what I expected. It has nothing to do really with the lifestyle of giants. It's more of a bunch of short stories about giants. If you are looking for that, then it would be a perfect book. But considering I was looking for facts and info about the mythical creature. Disappointing

    4. In the spirit of Poortvliet's Gnomes, this book is genre-busting and super fun. Beautifully imagined and illustrated.

    5. I'm not sure how to rate this one. Story(ies): 2 stars because they were shorts taken from novels like Gulliver's Travels and fables like Jack the giant killer. Stuff I'd heard before. Illustrations: 5 stars! Made reading the words easier.
