Giant - Strength - Devil - Fairy tale
Pedro Fourteen is a hell of guy: he is as big and strong as fourteen men, he works like fourteen men – but unfortunately he also eats like fourteen men. That's why the villagers want to get rid of him and literally send the candid voracious eater to hell. How Pedro fights a whole pack of nasty little devils, and why the devil is first put in a sack and finally ends up in a cool grave on top of a high mountain, that's what this peculiar fairy tale will tell you. The caricaturesque style of the energetic line-drawings, partially washed with watercolours, perfectly suits the humorous text. (5+)
