Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Spring 2018 69 The giant in the corner Those children's tales of giants are plentiful, from literature's "Jack and the Beanstalk" to "Paul Bunyan," the larger than life lumberjack. And at Page 158 Books in Wake Forest, there's a chair the oversized legends might just fit into. The giant chair — some 5 feet tall and wide enough to sit at least three regular-sized mortals — is a draw at the expansive independent bookstore. "That's usually where the storyteller sits," said proprietor Suzanne Lucey, who runs the place with her husband, David, and staff. "People love to take their pictures on it." From the storyteller's perch, a visiting child might hear a reading of the currently popular "Little Blue Truck," the story of a little pick-up that gets stuck on a muddy country lane and of the pack of farm animal friends willing to do whatever it takes to get their pal back on the road. The chair, Lucey said, is a much-appreciated loaner from Drew Bridges, who ran the predecessor Storyteller's Bookstore in downtown for many years. Of course, this being a place for all ages, don't miss the stainless steel pint glasses with off-beat sayings from musical hits, such as "Count the Head Lice on the Highway" and "Donuts Make My Brown Eyes Blue." And the T-shirts, proclaiming "Y'all Means ALL" and "Lit Happens."
