C. Literary Giants were Little Babies once
What the heck is a 'Literary Giant'
'Literary Giant' is a fancy way of describing someone who has done something important in Literature (usually in books). This 'Giant' (really just a normal sized person) could be an author, a critic, an artist who illustrated a book, etc. So someone who has done something really big in the reading and writing world could be called a 'Literary Giant'.

Famous author H.G. Wells (born on September 21, 1866) wrote The Time Machine (1895) & The Invisible Man (1897). He also wrote The War of the Worlds (1898) which a guy named Orson Wells performed on the radio the night before Halloween night (October 30th, 1938). It created quite a stir.
