App Description

Featured in iTunes WHAT'S HOT! The Boy Giant is beautifully illustrated and animated in full razor sharp retina graphics. Great for all but a must have if you have an iPhone4 or the new iPod Touch. Sure to be a big hit with little ones everywhere.

“THE BOY GIANT” is the charming story of Hujo, a little baby who just won't stop growing. But life soon gets lonely for the Boy Giant. He can't fit inside his school doors, he accidentally breaks all the rides in the playground... 
...and he can't even give his mother a hug! Then, a call for help from the US President takes him across the ocean on the biggest adventure of his life, but will he ever find a friend?

This Lite version has the first half of the book for you to sample.

What review sites are saying about The Boy Giant

I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to children’s books on the iPhone and it takes a lot to WOW me. I’m thrilled to write about the newest book on our small list of favorites: “The Boy Giant”. My son enjoys this book immensely, but I think I fancy it even more. There is something off-beat, silly, and sophisticated about this spirited book, and I can read or listen to it again and again without tiring of the engaging experience.


I have reviewed several children’s books app’s and I would have to say by far this is my favorite. 4.5 CrazyMikes Head’s for value, creativity, and awesome animated graphics.


The drawings are cute and colorful, and the story is a nice one with a good message and identifiable characters. The only real drawback to this app is that I keep losing my phone so that my son can watch or read the story.


The Boy Giant is as good as the excellent The Smelly Sprout. Anything that keeps my 6 year old daughter transfixed must be good.


After we’ve all smiled and laughed, we can rest assured that if there’s anything Hujo and Bigsy can teach children, it’s that you are never alone. 4.5 stars
