Harvey is a small boy in a giant world. On stilts.

When Harvey accidentally sets fire to his headteacher’s trousers, Mum decides it’s time for a BIG change. So, she packs him off to Madame Bogbrush’s School for Gifted Giants.

He’ll grunt. He’ll clomp. He’ll bash things with clubs. But Harvey’s not a giant. He’s a boy on stilts. And if his classmates find out, they’ll stomp him into a sandwich!

Then the Beastly School Board arrives for a surprise inspection and Harvey realises he’s not the only one in danger…
