‘This is the tale of a town far away / Where a curious story unfolded one day’

In this noisy story about being sound asleep, a gentle giant wreaks havoc – completely unwittingly – on a town with his incessant snoring. Many try to wake him, but no-one succeeds. As his deafening snoring thunders on, can anyone intervene and claim the reward?
