Jackanory Junior - 'Fig's Giant'
Actor Art Malik narrates this adaptation of the traditional tale 'Gulliver's Travels'. We meet a Lilliputian girl called Fig who is scared of many things little girls are frightened of. One day, when she is walking her dog on the beach, she finds a giant. The little girl runs to the town, rings the bell and summons the army. The army tie the giant up, shoot arrows at him and drug him. The giant then falls into a deep sleep and as he sleeps, the Lilliputians take him back to their town, where many people come to see the spectacle. Fig only visits to play and she and the giant become good friends. Eventually, Fig and the giant cross the sea to escape. 'Fig's Giant' was written by Geraldine McCaughrean and illustrated by Jago.
