…and just how DO you impress a giant, my dear Elephant?
You fake the giant out! The giant can squeeze a rock and get water out of it. But if you squeeze cheese instead of a rock and pretend the liquid from the cheese is water . . . well, there you have it a giant who is impressed with a little human who can match his power.
Now mind you this is not likely to be the way I personally would try to impress a giant, but it works in the story!
Most enlightening, I will bear this in mind when I next meet a giant!
The giant in the illustration does not seem impressed AT ALL.
Good advice for life, dear children. Especially try to impress your future bosses by demonstrating your powers, such as that you are smarter than them and stuff. LOL! Btw, is the giant male or female? (I’ll omit the question of ethnicity at all). Thanks. 🙂
