Publishers Description: Daniel is walking in the woods one day when he comes upon the biggest mango tree he's ever seen. But even more amazing is it occupant, a lady giant named Mangaboom. She's nineteen feet tall. She speaks Spanish and English. She like to skinny-dip and turn cartwheels on the beach."Holy mo," Daniel says. He's never met a giant before, much less one as fabulous as Mangaboom. As it turns out, Daniel and his new friend have a lot in common--which is more than Mangaboom's three bumbling gentlemen suitors can say.Here is a story as charming and larger-than-life as Mangaboom herself. Equally captiviating are the exquisite painting for this original tale.Daniel befriends a gentle giant who lives in a mango tree. As it turns out, Daniel and his nineteen-foot-tall friend have a lot in common--which is more than Mangaboom's three bumbling gentleman suitors can say. An original story with the flavor of a Puerto Rican folktale, with spectacular paintings by the Caldecott honor medalist.
