A trail of murder and terrorism across Australia, the Middle East, and Europe.

The twin giants by Dick King-Smith( Recording )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When twin giants set out in search of happiness, the result is a comedy of errors that is doubly clever and enormously funny. And as Normus (a vegetarian) and Lottavim (a carnivore) grow and grow, the two are hugely happy, playing Roll the Boulder, singing badly, and doing everything together: waking up, going to sleep, even sneezing. So when they reach the age of twenty and the height of twelve feet, it's not surprising that they each think the same thought at exactly the same time: "It's about time I found a wife!" But is it possible to find not one but two of the giantesses of your dreams?
