Publisher's Description

In the tradition of Calvin & Hobbes and Dr. Seuss comes a new story of unlikely friendship.

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a humongous and hairy giant named Wilfred. Whenever people saw him, they ran away, which made life very lonely for Wilfred. That is, until he found himself in a rather unusual town where one brave little boy saw something special in the timid giant. So begins a story of friendship and sacrifice that will remind readers just how important one voice – no matter how small – can be.

In this moving debut, Ryan Higgins shows his knack for blending humor and heart, and gives Lorax fans an unforgettable new hero.

Editorial Reviews

"Along with being full of chuckles, the heartwarming debut teaches the value of standing by the ones you love." - Dailycandy.com

"A heartening tale of friendship." - School Library Journal

"Higgins’s distinctively sculptural drawing style—the characters have the dimensional feel and expressive features of puppets—gives the story added emotional weight, and its sense of energy will keep readers turning the pages." - Publishers Weekly

"Wilfred is a friendship story that is as unique as Wilfred himself!" - Library Media Connection

"The sacrificial lengths to which Wilfred will go to make friends recall the The Giving Tree, but this is a far more lighthearted tale, and the oddball friendship between the Muppet-like Wilfred and the little boy is sure to please young readers." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
