When Giant Jim comes to town, people are terrified they'll be eaten, or squashed. But Jim is a good giant - he only eats omelettes, likes music and wants somewhere to live. Unfortunately he just can't do things right. He makes a racket with his saxophone, squashes the Town Hall and his hen even lays a giant egg on the library - and so he is banished. When a hurricane hits the town Jim's hen looks after people while he puts the town back together again. People are delighted and Giant Jim is allowed to live in a huge barn in the town.
