The Giant Jumperee

Two stars in one jumbo delight! Were you spooked by the Gruffalo? Do you remember how, in the end, he wasn’t as scary as he seemed? Now it’s time to meet another picture book villain. The question is, how worried should you be? A voice startles Rabbit as he hops home to his cosy hole. “I’m the Giant Jumperee, and I’m as scary as can be.” Uh-oh! The dreadful booming voice is coming from inside Rabbit’s burrow. But who is the Giant Jumperee? Is he as scary as he sounds?
