Muncle Trogg
Janet Foxley

A young readers’ novel about bullying, peer pressure, acceptance, diversity and friendship: Muncle Trogg is a giant, albeit a tiny one. In fact, he is so small that all the other giants make fun of him. So Muncle Trogg sneaks away to study the creatures which look most like him: humans, aka Smallings. One particular Smalling named Emily even becomes his friend when the other giants seem to have abandoned him.

This novel starts a series of three stories and might be used for an interdisciplinary project with Ethics and Social Science.
