Kloric had become lost from the land of Giants and found himself among the little people of the land.
Sadly, when the little people saw him coming they all ran for cover, screaming.
This made Kloric sad that they were so frightened of him, after all, he was a nice giant and only wanted to make friends.
He tried talking to them kindly but they didn't understand his language. So he started making friendly noises, cooing, aaaawwing and ooowwwing.
That didn't work. The little people wouldn't come out of hiding.
Kloric desperately needed their friendship and their help to get him back to the land of the Giants.
As the tears were trickling down his cheeks he saw a small scroll and quill and began to write to these little people in a language they would understand.
The little people came out of hiding and read the scroll. Together they built a large tower so the town mayor could talk to giant Kloric. Working together, the little people helped their new friend get back home.
