Hagop and The Hairy Giant

The Armenian Version of Jack and the Beanstalk

Authored by Talene Dadian White

The classic fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk retold with an Armenian twist! Hagop and the Hairy Giant takes place in Masis, Armenia, where our hero Hagop scales a magic noorr (pomegranate) tree to rescue the lovely Maryam, a prisoner of Medz Mazod, the hairy giant. But before he saves the girl, Hagop must first go head-to-head with Medz Mazod, battling him with a kebab shish, leading to other adventures with the giant's magic oud (Armenian guitar) and golden hav (hen).
Exciting full-color illustrations bring the story to life, depicting beautiful Armenian landscapes and characters that look stereotypically Armenian.
Hagop and the Hairy Giant is written in "Arm-English" (English with some Armenian words) and includes a glossary and pronunciation guide to help readers learn the meanings of the Armenian words and to pronounce them correctly.
A delight for Armenian children!
