A warm tale about a friendly giant whose heart is better than his dress sense!
George wished he wasn't the scruffiest giant in town. So when he sees a new shop selling giant-sized clothes, he decides it's time for a new look: smart trousers, smart shirt, stripy tie, shiny shoes. Now he's the smartest giant in town ...until he bumps into some animals who desperately need his help and his clothes!
