A beautifully written, lyrical text in which a little girl named Anna enjoys a day with some very unusual playmates – a pair of giants who visit only " when the sun shines just so and the wind blows like this and that on its way to somewhere else. " Together, they play catch by the gnarled oak, pick peaches on the hillside, and dangle their toes in the shady pond until their shadows grow long and sleepy. Kevin Henkes’s wonderful illustrations of the giants adapting each activity to their tremendous size, adding wonderful humor and creativity to this enchanting tale.
