A wonderfully cinematic adventure about a small girl and the giant she discovers under a tree, and the reuniting of that giant--only a child herself--with her parents. In the midst of a ferocious storm, a new ``presence'' enters Amy's mind. Venturing out after the storm, she finds an ancient tree uprooted, and underneath it a giant woman (so she thinks), beginning to awaken after thousands of years of sleep. The mental bond they share is mysterious and threatening to Amy's older brother, Peter, who is torn between a desire to protect his sister, and a wish to destroy a part of her life from which he is excluded. The giant, helpless in this world, must be protected until her people come--from another planet--for her, but Peter inadvertently brings danger to both the giant and his sister.

Now that I have my own chickadee, it's not available. ;)
