There’s no escaping the Giant’s kitchen, where you wait in queue, and hope you don’t become its snack.

The giant-sized cookbooks. They are bigger than a normal human (or feline) adult and the recipes are not what you would serve friends and family, unless you’re a giant.

Put your fears of riding the Flying Machine to rest, after you look at the design drawings of its inventor, Humpty. Or maybe not.

Puss and Kitty will urge you to hop on the flying machine to escape from the Giant’s kitchen in search of the legendary golden eggs. (Find out more about the Humpty Alexander Dumpty’s flying machines.)

Your mission runs into trouble when you’re spotted by a Tattletale gosling who alerts the Great Terror of your presence in the castle.

Once exposed, you’re rocketed through plenty of twists and turns as they are pursued by the Great Terror, who turns out to be one big Mama Goose!

The town wall is covered with posters. Take your time and give them a read for chuckles. These are a little hidden so you might need to hunt for them. [HINT: they are located outside the castle]
