Once upon a time, as darkness falls, four children from different corners of the world meet in dreamtime. By the flickering firelight, up the spiral staircase of his crumbling library, the Story Giant waits for them. He is older than memory, older than time and for generations he has collected stories like falling stars. But now he waits. He waits for their stories, for their imaginations and for the one tale in all the world that can save him.

Adapted by Lindsay Rodden from the book by Brian Patten this is a family adventure into the magic of storytelling.
