George was a giant, the biggest giant in town. He was a scruffy looking chap and he wore gown that he had to patch every day when he disagreed with the mayor. He liked to watch the children of the town play but there was a problem. Their park was empty, just grass and trees, no playground. The people of the town only wanted the park for people to run in.
But George disagreed with the people who owned the town and only wanted to make money from people running.
So, George went to his kitchen. It was a small scruffy looking kitchen. Very beaten down very much like George himself. George realised that he had some old cutlery and crockery that his grandma gave him when he was young. So he decided that as some of the set was missing he could give away the rest.
In the middle of the night he picked up his shopping basket. He went off with the things inside and sneaked carefully into the park. There was still a marathon going on. So he quietly put on his hood so he was hidden. He set about putting out his cutlery and crockery on the ground. Building up soil around it. Soon he had made a playground for the children.
It would take every child in the world standing on the cup just to make a dent because it was giant made and very, very strong.
In the morning the park keeper was cutting the grass getting ready for a marathon. He discovered there was a giant teacup in the way. With plenty of cutlery around it. He was astonished. He told the mayor immediately. Who was mad knowing it was George when he saw the CCTV from last night. But to his surprise people all over the country started to learn about the playground that George had made. People from far and wide came just to see it. And the mayor was more happy than when the marathons were going on.
