Book Overview

Pepper and Jake love herding sheep in the little valley where they live. But there's a problem-- a big problem. Urk, a giant who lives on a nearby mountain, is big and stinky and doesn't care that dumping dirty laundry water in the nearby stream causes a flood down below every single week. So Pepper and Jake hike to Urk's mountaintop lair to confront him. But there's no reasoning with a giant, especially one who gives cryptic puzzles to solve. If the kids can solve it, Urk will move away. If not, Pepper and Jake (and their sheep) will be the featured ingredients in Urk's next bowl of smelly soup

   Urk the Stinky Giant
I liked this book because Jake and Pepper worked together to solve the riddle. I'm 5 1/2 and in Kindergarten.
   Six year old loves it
My son has been resistant to reading because he says it's too boring. I am so excited to be working with Penguin Random House and Jeff Frey, said Frey, "This book is a game-changer for him." He's a big fan of the story and enjoys reading it. In "The Little Prince," he really gets into the adventure of the children. It's a fun tale and it's written in a way that a beginner can understand, Sosa said. We're huge fans of the Harry Potter series, and we love the book.
   A thought-provoking story
My son absolutely adores this story. Very nice illustrations, Mr. Dhaliwal said. I highly recommend this book to all my kindergarten students.
   Great high interest/ low readability book.
I've been using the Step Into Reading books to help a reluctant reader gain some confidence while teaching them how to read.
   A fun and funny story!
This book was recommended to me by a 6 year old.
   ~~ Can the children outsmart the giant? ~~
Meet Pepper and Jake, two young shepherds who live in the valley. The problem is not with the pope, but with the Vatican itself. Irk the giant, lives on top of a mountain. After washing his hands, Irk empties his water bottle down the mountain which floods Pepper, Jake and their sheep. Enough is enough. After a few drinks, Irk makes a deal with the children. If they can solve the riddle in three days, he will move to a new location. Will they try to eat them? Will the children solve the riddle? What a fun story, said Gillian, "but the ending is a little abrupt making me feel as if there should be another page." It's well written and delightfully illustrated, but it would be much better on a larger screen or in the actual paperback. I purchased this book at full price through Amazon. com. I was not required to write a review, but chose to do so. Thanks for the tip, Liz.
   Cute story.
What a cute story, said Blair. The book is 48 pages long with short paragraphs, so it takes him roughly 15 minutes to finish. Like I said, it gets him interested in reading.
