'Wonderful, moving, original book. It teaches us a new visual language for love, for worry and for family.'
ROBERT MACFARLANE

'Mollie Ray’s exquisitely rendered drawings guide us tenderly through this tale of family, courage, fear and joy.'
KATIE GREEN

The captivating and affecting graphic novel debut of a major new talent.


Giant is a silent graphic novel inspired by the journey Mollie Ray’s brother faced after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and the effects this had on their family. Waking one morning, he finds he has physically grown to the size of a giant - a visual metaphor for the physical mutation of cancer and of feeling like the ‘elephant in the room’. But it also represents the strength he could take away from recovery.

Drawn in ball-point pen, the gorgeous illustrations of Giant adopt a soft, gentle style creating characters and locations that are deeply relatable. A work of great empathy and emotional truth, this wordless wonder of a book speaks to, echoes, and illuminates the all-too-common experience of serious illness.

‘Sumptuous [and] intriguing.’
