5 stars This short tale is one found in The Complete Fairy Tales of George MacDonald. It is a retelling of a Norwegian fairy tale where a child-eating giant has hidden his heart and a two children (Tricksey-Wee & Buffy-Bob) seek it out to teach the giant a lesson. It offers some points worth talking about if read to kids (i.e. there's a moral that can be pulled out of the story).
Here's a favorite quote from the tale: "Then Tricksey-Wee told them that there was a giant on the borders who treated little children no better than radishes, and that they had narrowly escaped being eaten by him; that they had found out that the great she-eagle of Mount Skycrack was at present sitting on his heart; and that, if they could only get hold of the heart, they would soon teach the giant better behaviour."
