The Selfish Giant won’t let the children play in his beautiful garden. But when he tries to wall it off from the world, Winter comes to stay, with nothing but snow and wind and hail, and Spring will not return. It isn’t until the Giant realizes his selfishness has been keeping life from his garden that he comes to believe kindness wins out over selfishness. This enchanting story from Oscar Wilde, evocatively illustrated by renowned artist Lisbeth Zwerger, is a poignant tale of generosity you’ll want to share with others.
A little jewel of a book in a new illustrated edition of Oscar Wilde’s beloved tale The children loved to play in the Giant’s garden, but when he returned after years away, he said, “What are you doing here?” and the children fled. This is the classic story of a giant whose gloomy outlook and self-centered ways are changed by a remarkable tiny child.
Oscar Wilde was an Irish author, playwright, and poet. His books for children have become beloved classics.
