    I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishersThis is a children's book about a remarkable young man who grew to be 7'9 tall The book is a short but sweet biography told in story format about Angus MacAskill's life and how even though he became famous for being the tallest man in the world and seeing the world he felt small and alone and realised home was actually where his family and friends were who accepted and loved him for who he was rather than what he was This is a lovely story for children and the illustrations were befitting to the time period of the book too

    Pleasant and perfectly serviceable look at the Cape Breton Giant a circus goliath who topped out at seven foot nine got to meet ueen Victoria but knew that ultimately the people in his home village looked up to him for what he did and how he helped them out and not because of his freakish stature The message that the manner of man or woman one chooses to be is important than looks is always salient I had thought we'd seen the last of twee farm animals looking over their fence to watch the main character leave home as if they know what's going on and have an opinion about it but the old fashioned style here isn't at odds with the nature of the story

    Nicely done picture book about a man who becomes a circus exhibition then uits it all to return home againThere have been several books about such people oddities that were exhibited during the height of that sort of thing in Victorian times and it is interesting to see how their life went before and after the circusThanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review

    A Giant Man from a Tiny Town A Story of Angus Macaskill by Tom Ryan illustrated by Christopher Hoyt PICTURE BOOK Nimbus Publishing 2018 23 9781771086547BUYING ADVISORY EL K 3 ESSENTIALAUDIENCE APPEAL AVERAGEAngus Macaskill was an average height child until his teenage years when he grew to seven feet and nine inches At that point Angus worked the fields in his small town for a few years until he decided to see the world by joining the circus After traveling for a time he returned home This is a uick and easy informational text about a true figure from history The story is fairly bare bones and the illustrations are muted and traditional but it works in this case Hopefully this will interest readers in learning about this and other historical figures Jen Wecker HS English Teacherhttpskissthebookjrblogspotcom20

    Angus McGill was average height until he was a teenager when he really started outgrowing his peers He was well over 7 feet tall by the time he was an adult His town loved him he was big and strong but he felt like the world had to offer so he traveled to the big city eventually joining the circus But no one loves you like your friends and familyI love these uick informational texts It's the perfect spring board to get a child's mind ready to research or to look up information Christopher Hoyt's cover picture is one of my favorite parts of the book Angus barely fits he is so tall Includes an authors note at the end with biographical information and a photograph of Angus and General Tom Thumb

    A picture book biography of Angus MacAskill who grew to 7'9 and eventually left his Cape Breton home to enter show business But then decided eventually to retire and return to his homeI like the way this book uietly reminds readers that everyone wants to be loved for who they are as a person not necessarily what makes them most noticeable This is a uick read with just a few lines per page but it succinctly tells the story of a man with extraordinary height who had an urge to see the world The illustrations fit the time period very well A cozy picture book biography of a very normal man who happened to be abnormally tall

  7. Lynn Davidson says:

    This is a non fiction picture book the story of a young boy who emigrated from the Scottish Hebrides with his family to a small town in Cape Breton now part of Nova Scotia Canada Angus was of normal size until he hit adolescence when he grew and grew and grew to over 7 feet tall as an adult He was perfectly proportioned very strong and of a gentle nature Angus travelled with PT Barnum circus for awhile and moved back home to build successful businessesThis is a well told story beautifully illustrated

    Cute and competently illustrated I wouldn’t say it’s worth buying but it would definitely be worth checking out of the library If you get away from the fact you can’t go anywhere this is a nice book for families The book has nice exercises and so much information The illustrations were so soThanks to NetGalley for the arc in exchange for an honest review

    An interesting true story about a giant man 7 feet tall who worked in PT Barnum's circus Cute but a similar book that I liked is The True Tale of a Giantess The Story of Anna Swan
