From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Imagine a giant, splendid in every way, except for his lack of a bellybutton. He is about to eat an orange one day, when it offers to become his bellybutton. The giant's friends all admire this new addition to his anatomy, but, unaccustomed to the protuberance on his stomach, he begins to bump into things. The orange, wishing to avoid bruises, runs away, and the furious giant sets off in pursuit. After several failed attempts to hide, the orange, closely followed by the giant, rolls into the nostril of Old Man Earth, who sneezes, sending the two flying. They finally agree to a compromise. The illustrations of the hairy, half-naked giant and anthropomorphized clouds and moon verge on the grotesque and do nothing to salvage this convoluted tale from its stilted sentimentality. --Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library
