The Smartest Giant In Town is written by Julia Donaldson, the award-winning author of The Gruffalo. This is the chinese translated version.
George is the scruffiest giant in town. One day, the kind-hearted giant decides to get himself a set of nice clothes. On his way home, he comes across various animals. He meets a giraffe with a cold neck and he gives away his scarf to help the giraffe. Next, he meets a mouse whose house was burned down and he gives away his new shoes to the mouse. And so on. He gives away all his new clothes, one-by-one, to help the others. Eventually, he puts back his old stack of clothes and becomes the same old scruffy giant again. Nonetheless, for his generous/selfless acts, he found himself a whole new bunch of friends. They call him the Smartest Giant in Town.
