About the Book

“[Tess’s] self-confidence grows to match her giant heart. A fanciful story of empowerment.” Kirkus

Internationally acclaimed and bestselling author-illustrator Dan Yaccarino presents a larger than life picture book about a girl with a heart as giant as she is.

Tess has a BIG problem.

She’s a giant with an enormous wish to be like everyone else in the city of Myth-hattan. When she gives up on ever fitting in, she meets a friend just her size, and the two team up for a daring rescue. Can these misfits save the day—and the big city parade?

This reassuring and heartwarming tale will empower young readers struggling to find acceptance, and it reminds us that there’s a hero within every one of us.

“A satisfying tale of friendship and acceptance…Readers will root for heroine Tess and her sidekick.” - Booklist
