updated: May 20, 2021

Recent release “The Boy Who Befriended a Giant” from Covenant Books author Shaun Williams is an interesting narrative focusing on two young boys who seem to be unique from their peers yet find the sense of belongingness within each other.

Shaun Williams, a passionate educator and coach for 17 years, a devoted husband to an amazing woman and a father, has completed his new book, “The Boy Who Befriended a Giant”: a delightful story introducing Jack and his dear friend, Preston. Jack was known to be a loner and only spends time with his books. One fine day, he mustered up all the courage he had to approach the new student who unintentionally stands out for being different.

Shaun writes, “This is a story about a little boy who always felt like an outsider. Whether he was at school or at home, he never felt like he belonged. His favorite time was at home under the tree in the backyard reading his books. He feels like he belongs when he reads his books. His books make him feel less lonely. This all changed when one day a boy named Preston came to Jack’s school. Preston stood out in his new school because he looked different than all the other kids. He is biracial, and the kids in this new school do not look like him. To make matters worse, Preston is much taller than all the other kids. He is the size of some of the teachers. And because of his looks and large size, he intimidates the other kids in school. They are scared of him. So they run away from him and call him Giant. Jack feels sorry for Preston, and even though he is painfully shy, he wants to be Preston’s friend. This story is about how a kind act helps a boy overcome his own shyness to become a friend to someone in need and in turn finds his place to fit in.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Shaun Williams’ new book is a heartwarming work of fiction that can be used as a tool for instilling virtues such as respect and tolerance towards people. The story also emphasizes doing the right thing in any given circumstance without meaning to be praised in return.
