From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 "KA-RUMBLE, KA-RUMBLE" over the hill stomps near-sighted Giant Rumbleton with an empty cart, invading the life of the wee small woman and creating havoc in her garden. The humorous way she reclaims her produce and makes a friend in the process occupies the remaining pages of this endearing original folk tale. Truesdell's watercolor with ink illustrations are outstandingly detailed and animated and add to the rollicking fun of the book. Children will be hard pressed not to giggle as the wee woman fusses and her apron bulges with retrieved vegetables. A bonus is the inclusion at the end of the book of the music for the oft-repeated giant's song. Ideal material for storytelling or for reading aloud.

From Publishers Weekly:

The notion of a friendly giant, at first completely intimidated by a "wee small woman" and then living in harmony as her neighbor, is an inviting one. The giant pulls up every vegetable in her garden, so the woman chases after him, calling him names like "potato nose" and "carrot toes." In a rage, the giant finally throws back every vegetable he picked. The two talk, and the woman realizes that the giant is simply hungry for a good pot of soup. She cooks up a batch, and it's safe to assume that they live happily every after. The text, by itself, doesn't sustain an interest in this book; it's Truesdell's amiable illustrations, with her bug-eyed people and jewel-like vegetable patch, that provide the real seasoning to this tale.
