Too enormous to fit in any bed, Og the giant yearns for a good night’s sleep. When he tries to slumber in the forest, the noisy animals who nest in his beard and curl in his pockets make it impossible for him to snooze for even a moment. After helping Noah gather the animals for the ark, all Og asks for in return is a bed of his own. Based on a story from the Talmud, this gentle fable about the rewards of kindness makes perfect bedtime reading to send sleepy little giants off to dreamland.
“An unusual take on a familiar story, with an enormous and likeable character…”
