This week Mrs. Yollis' class continues with their unit on fantasy. The story of the week is called The Mysterious Giant of Barletta by Tomie dePaola.
As luck would have it, Nonno's been to see the giant!
(Nonno is our guest blogger. He is Ben's grandfather and currently lives in Italy.
He shares his Italian travels with all of us! Enjoy his guest post!)
Barletta is also in Puglia, on the heel of Italy.

Now the statue is called The Colossus of Barletta. Here is what the people of Barletta tell us about it.
