In this traditional story from the Western Arctic, a kind giant adopts a human boy. One night, after a meal, the giant gives the boy one job, to watch for grizzly bears while he sleeps. Each time the boy sees a bear, he wakes the giant. But the giant is so big he is not concerned with any regular grizzly. That is until a giant grizzly appears and the giant must fight to protect himself and his adopted son!

Told in a manner faithful to the original traditional story, passed forward for generations, this thrilling tale will delight young readers looking for adventure.
