There was once a shy, lonely giant who lived alone on a deserted farm. He was afraid that if he was seen by anyone, they would be scared of him and wouldn't like him.
One day a little girl turned up at the giant's door, lost and looking for someone to help her. She leaped up to reach the doorknob.
The giant's heart was pounding. He was sure he had seen the doorknob turn. He quickly hid as the girl came inside. The little girl looked around, confused by the over-sized furniture.
Thank you so much for bringing our little girl home!!
The giant accidentally knocked down the mirror he was hiding behind. He was worried that the little girl would scream and run away once she saw him, but instead, she acted like nothing had changed, asking the giant for help.
Hello, I am lost. Will you help me get home?
The giant and the little girl start their journey back to the little girl's house, talking along the way. The girl tells the giant that he is amazing the way he is and that he shouldn't be worried about what other people would think.
When they arrive at the little girl's house, her family is very relieved. They can't thank the giant enough for bringing her home. All of the giant's worries about never being liked wash away.
