‘A fabulous tale of the days when giants and dragons walked the Kingdom.’
Sunday Times

Farmer Giles of Ham did not look like a hero. He was fat and red-bearded and enjoyed a slow, comfortable life.
Then on day a rather deaf and short-sighted giant blundere onto his land. More by luck than skill. Farmer Giles managed to scare him away. The people of the village cheered: Farmer Giles was a hero.
His reputation spread far and wide across the kingdom. So it was natural that when the dragon Chrysophylax visited the area it was Farmer Giles who expected to do battle with it!
