Description
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.
