Quotes

The Storyteller: Think of all kinds of unpleasant things and add 'giant' to them. And that's what you get when a giant has no heart. Such a giant once terrorized a country in the far north of the world near the very top. He'd hidden his heart, it gave him too much trouble, all those giant feelings. In it's place was a wasps' nest about to swarm.
