A Story About Trust and Evidence
When the beloved Mr. Giant keels over after eating a bowl of soup in the Royal Marigold Restaurant, it’s a recipe for trouble for eleven-year-old Prince William of Marigold.
Now William–a.k.a. the comic strip artist known as “Jack”–is facing charges of attempted giant-killing.
The evidence against him? His newly published comic strip–about “knock-out flavor”–and his solo kitchen duty on the day the Mr. Giant conked out on the restaurant table.
To solve the mystery of Mr. Giant’s magical sleeping sickness, William needs some help from his friends in other parts of the Seven Kingdoms.
But seven, suspicious, out-of-town giants are blocking the castle exits and won’t let him out, no matter what he cooks up.
