HAGOP AND THE HAIRY GIANT ~ ՅԱԿՈԲԸ և ՄԱԶՈՏ ՀՍԿԱՆ
By Talene Dadian White
This is the classis fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk with an Armenian twist. Hagop and the Hairy Giant takes place in Masis, Armenia, where our hero Hagop scales a magic noorr (pomegranate) tree to rescue the lovely Maryam, a prisoner of Medz Mazod, the hairy giant. But before he saves the girl, Hagop must first go head-to-head with Medz Mazod, battling him with kebab shish, leading to other adventures with the giant’s magic oud and golden hav (chicken).
