This book starts at the end of a physical journey and ends with the beginning of a spiritual one. The Probyn boys, Adolphus and Constantine are going to live with a tutor and his family. The family consists of Mr. and Mrs. Roby,and their children, Aleck, Bertha and Laura. The Probyns are thoughtless selfish rude and spoiled. The Roby children are quick to react and point out the faults of Probyns but their Mother is more concerned with them seeing their own faults and overcoming them. The story jumps back and forth between the adventures and struggles of the children, to the allegory of "The Giant Killer" which their mother reads to them. A sweet encouraging story. It can inspire all of us to deal with the Giants in our own hearts while having grace for the faults of others. The hero of the allegory is Knight Fide (which means Faith). Read and watch Knight Fide and the Roby children overcome the Giants of sloth, anger and others.
