Lottavim and Normus do everything together: waking up, going to sleep, even sneezing. So when they reach the age of twenty and the height of twelve feet, it's not surprising that they each think the same thought at exactly the same time: "It's about time I found a wife!" But how is it possible to find not one but two of the giantesses of your dreams?

PreSchool-Grade 2—Twin giants are born on a mountaintop and named (E)Normus and (There's a)Lottavim by their proud parents. The boys are identical and enjoy the same things (except that one is a vegetarian). They race up and down mountains, roll boulders, and sing off-key at the top of their lungs. On the same day, at age 20, they decide that the time has come to seek wives. Pursuing two giantesses is no easy task, and the brothers find slim pickings. After a search over seven mountains, a few proposals, and a couple cases of mistaken identity, the two find the perfect mates. Delightful illustrations in ink, watercolor, colored pencil, and digital collage are engaging and add much to the somewhat convoluted story. This is an early romance chapter-book for newly independent readers, made more appealing by its artwork.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
