The Wrong Side of a Giant

Based on an Indonesian folk tale
Adapted & written by Chip Colquhoun
Illustrated by Korky Paul

Tutumu is always hungry, because her mother has to cook most of the food on their farm to keep the giant happy. When Tutumu eats the giant’s share, though, she finds herself on the wrong side of him…

This classic Indonesian folk tale is given the Chip & Korky treatment to mark Fairtrade Fortnight, the celebration of the scheme to give food workers everywhere a fair price for the work they do, which takes place every February.
