Meet Pepper and Jake, young shepherds who live in the valley. Who and what is the problem? Irk, the giant, lives up on top of a mountain. When it is wash day Irk empties his washtub down the mountain which results in a flood for poor Pepper, Jake and their sheep. Enough is enough! Time to go speak with Irk.
Irk makes a deal with the children. If they can solve the riddle in three days he will move away. If they can't he'll eat them! Will the children succeed in solving the riddle? How about your children?
Although this is a fun story, the ending is a little abrupt/strange making me feel as if there should be another page. Well written though and delightfully illustrated.
Opening in landscape mode this book is readable on a Kindle Paperwhite HOWEVER it would be much better on a larger screen or in the actual paperback. I purchased this book at full price. I was not required to write a review but chose to do so. Thanks, Liz
