An extract from Odysseus and the Cyclops:
With one gigantic eye in the middle of his forehead, the giant spotted his uninvited guests at once. "Humans!" he breathed, his drooling mouth spreading into a greedy grin. With surprising speed for such a hulking brute, he thrust out an enormous arm, snatched up two men and crammed them into his mouth. Odysseus and the other sailors watched in horror as the giant crunched up their companions and smacked his lips in satisfaction.
