From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Giant Rumblebuffin was turned into a statue by the White Witch when he tried to crush her. Aslan magically brings him to life by breathing on his feet; the power of Aslan's breath carries up along the giant's body. Lucy and Susan are frightened of Giant Rumblebuffin at first, but soon realize that he is kind and gentle. Although Giant Rumblebuffin is a pretty minor character, he reminds the reader not to judge based on appearances – at least not all the time!
