Product Description:

The Roby family is about to be infiltrated by the Probyn twins. Adolphus and Constantine Probyn have been sent to the Roby's quaint home for private tutoring. The Roby children, Alex, Bertha, and Laura, are initially glad to have them arrive. However, after only a day, it is quite clear that battle lines have been drawn between the children. Mrs. Roby walks into the midst of one of these beginning battles, and instead of taking notice of the conflict; she sits them down and reads them a story about a Giant-killer. In this allegorical story, the great knight Fides must travel through enemy land to slay any giant that should oppose him on the way in order to receive their great reward. Fides must overcome Giant Sloth, Giant Selfishness, Giant of Untruth, Giant Hate and Giant Pride in order to save the Fair Gratitude from the slough of forgetfulness. The lessons hidden within this story have a powerful effect on the fictional children, and it will impact your children as well. Written in 1888 by A.L.O.E., 173 pgs. elise
