Where is the Giant's pencil case?


The Giant was striding home from Giant School and stopped to draw a sketch of the changes in the forest. As he opened his knapsack he realised he had lost his brand new pencil case. 

His mother would scold him, he was sure. In panic he retraced his steps, desperate to find it, and dropped his freshly sharpened pencils on the ground.


Poor Giant! I hope he found it and remembered to pick up his pencils.

  1. Wonderful! There is no other rational explanation for what we see in the picture.

  2. Hahaha, and if he didn't pick up his pencils I'm sure someone used them as fence poles ;-)

  4. That has to be one hell of a pencil sharpener. Or chainsaw.

  8. Someone sure worked hard at sharpening those pencils. They wouldn't fit into my sharpener, that's for sure.
    Great photo, and I love the story, Janice.

  9. An amazing picture. Janice, did you see my Friday post? I am about to acquire a third dog. Please see my post; and if you have any suggestions for introducing a male puppy to two female doge (ages 3 and 5), email me. I pick up the dog pictured tomorrow and sometimes I wonder if I am a bit crazy. LOL.

  11. Oh my goodness! How did they sharpen those points like that? They must have a giant stake sharpener.

  12. Do you have beavers there? I like how you wove a story around the image, a nice little story which could be a nice little children's book.

  13. Thank you folks:-)

    I'd hate to meet the giant who needed toothpicks that size . . .

    Beavers are being reintroduced, to my joy, though not in my area.

  14. Well it looks like he did a great job of sharpening his pencils. Those look like they make great fence posts.

  19. Hi janice .. there's a school north of Lewes .. that has a pencil fence - it looks great .. painted colourfully up .. I expect the pencils need sharpening .. but still - looks good.

    Cheers Hilary

  20. Thank you:-) Pencils are the most dangerous things in infant schools - just imagine what fence-sized pencils could do;-)
