Publisher Description:
Talk about out of the frying pan, into the fire I was pretty sure that my freaky stepsister and that freaky field guide of hers would ruin my life. But now it looks like they're going to ruin all of Florida, too Okay, maybe that's not fair. Maybe all these stupid giants would be waking up anyway, but if it wasn't for her and that book, I'd be home playing video games and this would be someone else's giant problem

Nick and Laurie are back, taking over giant-hunting from Noseeum. With Jules and Cindy, the kids lure the giants away and save the town from destruction. While the plot is bland, fans will be glad to see Nick and Laurie starting to work as a team. Black-and-white full-page drawings and spot art illustrate much of the action.
