TRR: Episode 87, “The Pumpkin Giant”

For Halloween, we have for you a story of a horrible giant who devours fat little children.

The story was “retold” in the 1970s by Ellin Green, and wonderfully illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman. Here, we tell the original tale first published in a collection of children’s stories called “The Pot of Gold.”
