One comment on “Poem of the Week From Giant Stories

  1. The Book of Giant Stories was published in 1972 and won the Christopher Award. There are three stories in the book plus four limericks.

    The one you see posted today is the version that came out in England. The original American version went like this:

    There once was a giant named Groans
    Who lived in a castle of stones,
    And often he said,
    “I’d sure like some bread,
    But I hate gringing up all those bones!”

    I never knew why the English editor chose to make the change.
