The Minpins by Roald Dahl tells a story about a young child named Billy as he ventures deep into the woods where creatures roam in usual places. He has to face the Gruncher and kill it before it is safe to go on the forest floor! If the story had a moral it would be: You can sometimes face what is more powerful than you with help from your friends. My favorite part was when a swan was able to help Billy kill the Gruncher.
