Squiglet uses a curved line to squiggle a boy called Jack who's really tired. A noisy giant lives in the cloud above his house and keeps Jack and his mum awake all night with his loud footsteps! Jack is determined to go up there and ask him to be quiet. He goes off to the market to buy a tall ladder so he can get up into the clouds.
Squiglet squiggles the market for him and they set off. But when they get to the ladder stall, it's sold out of ladders! The stallholder offers Jack a handful of magic beans instead, promising that they'll grow into a giant beanstalk that Jack can climb to get up into the clouds instead. Jack's mum is disappointed when she sees the beans and it seems like she's right when Jack plants them and the beanstalk only grows a few feet high!
Squiglet has an idea - maybe it just needs watering! So he squiggles Jack a watering can. Sure enough, as soon as Jack waters it, the beanstalk grows right up into the clouds! Up Jack climbs, with Squiglet following and at the top, they can hear the giant's footsteps! Except they're not footsteps, but hops - the giant is playing hopscotch! He's very sorry when he hears that he's been keeping Jack and his mum awake. It's just that he lives up there all alone so he has to play games that he can play by himself.
Squiglet suggests that he and Jack could play together and Jack agrees, as long as it's a quieter game! But what? A look at the Squiggle Pad gives them the answer, a jigsaw puzzle! Squiglet soon squiggles one and Jack and the giant have fun putting it together - together!
