Hewitt is quite extraordinary--though he is a son of giants, he is small in stature, yet quite adept at taking care of himself and, worried that Hewitt was not growing, his parents called in medical specialists but medical science could not pinpoint the problem. Believing that “big things are best”, the Andersons endeavor to teach Hewitt how to live among giants and big things, but that proved difficult at best, and in return, Hewitt wounds up teaching them just how resourceful he is.
