NEŽNI VELIKAN

Author: Michael Morpurgo

Who has not heard of Michael Morpurgo, one of the most famous and awarded English authors of children’s books?

Who has not heard of Michael Morpurgo, one of the most famous and awarded English authors of children’s books? Much of his work has been translated into nearly every language known to man, including Slovenian. We have brought his beautiful folktale Gentle Giant (2003) to Slovenian readers. The book was translated along with the children’s opera of the same title. 

The story, although written nearly two decades ago, tackles topics that are relevant today more than ever. It encourages us to embrace each other’s differences, not judge people by appearance, and at the same time highlights the problem of destruction of nature. 

It is a tale of compassion, love, belief, a story that children should be encouraged to read.
