Cormoran the Giant

I live in a gloomy cavern on the top of Saint Michael’s Mount, off Cornwall. I’m eighteen feet high and nine feet round. My fierce and savage appearance terrifies everyone around me. When I go to the mainland for meat, I throw half a dozen oxen on my back and tie three times as many sheep and hogs around my waist.

Everywhere I go, I take what I want. I don’t care what people think. I’m free of all cares!
