Grandad's Secret Giant by David Litchfield - author of 'The Bear and The Piano' is a wonderful picture book about acceptance that can be enjoyed by children of all ages.
This is the main theme of the story. Prejudice against things that we are afraid of and the acceptance of such things. In the story, we see how Billy reacts when he first sees the giant and how his Grandad's words makes him react differently to the other people in the town.
