Description

William and Bill climb to the top of an enormous hill. Little do they realise, the hill is actually a sleeping giant, and the summit is the end of the giant's nose. It seems like a great place to eat their sandwiches, but when the giant wakes up, the kids are in for the biggest adventure of their lives. Where is the giant going? Can they figure out how to get down? Will they panic? Or will there be wonders?

The creators of The Enormous Hill are two of the founders of the world-renowned Old Trout Puppet Workshop, Judd Palmer and Pityu Kenderes. When live theatre was shut down by the Pandemic, they made the book to help Judd's young son Max come to terms with the upheaval all around him. Partly a parable about finding joy even when your life seems to be out of your control, and partly a story about how friendships get us through, above all The Enormous Hill is a tale that makes the world feel more magical. After all, who knows what giant you're sitting on right now? Who knows when it might wake up?

Steve Kenderes

Steve (Pityu) Kenderes paints and makes sculptures, and lives on the other side of the whole country in a town called Pictou in a place called Nova Scotia. He lives in a rickety old house overlooking the sea with his partner Jen, many dogs and cats and stray animals, plants, and moss. He is a great lover of colour; it is his favourite thing, really. He also loves old black and white photographs, and imagining the colourful world the people in the photographs lived in.

He's part of the Old Trout Puppet Workshop, a company of artists who do all kinds of things together, like making puppet shows, operas, films, books, sculptures, and music, and performing all over the world.
