Gino the Giant Slayer
About the book
Gino the Giant Slayer is the first in the Gino series of children's books. It is an illustrated child’s tale of an ordinary boy who succeeds in conquering an extraordinary situation. In so doing, Gino demonstrates self determination, courage, honor, problem solving, brotherhood, and leadership. His adventure inspires a strong sense of community and a willingness to go the extra mile to accomplish goals or to sustain an ideal. The story has universal appeal with the caramel-complexioned Gino and rural mountain community setting. The story may alternately be presented in a primary grade teaching environment with the use of a variety of props, as an animated tale for mass viewing, or as a bedtime story with no props at all. The central character is introduced in the first five frames. The story develops in the next twenty pages, with the climax spanning three illustrations, and the epilogue containing five pictures. The tale will hold the attention of children from ages three to nine years.
