Format: Hardcover
Beautiful illustrations with cutouts and flaps...you can see a peek at what is on other pages, blends into a different object, but when you turn the page...whala...it's something else! This is an older preschooler book, probably won't appeal or be appropriate for 1 or 2 year olds.

I was a preschool teacher for almost 20 years. I had a large collection of preschool storybooks, including this one. On those occasions when I would ask the children what story they wanted me to read to them, they would invariably choose Watch Out! A Giant.

The story is similar to the books Where the Wild Things Are and There's a Nightmare in My Closet in that it shows children overcoming their fears. The design of the book, similar to Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar is full of twists and surprises.

This book is very underrated, perhaps because it is not as appealing to adults as it is to preschool children. I would not have known how much children like this book if I had not asked my preschool class, "What story do you want me to read?"

This is a weird book. I generally love Carle, but this was a little strange. My daughter is 2 and she was definitely too young for this book, though she did love the flaps, but for myself, the story is just a little odd. It doesn't flow well. Also, I know a number of people who said it was a scary book, it's not, you have to read all the way to the end to see the giant is make believe the whole time. So at least read it all the way through!
