A magnificent new illustrated edition of Oscar Wilde's famous and moving story

The children always played in the Giant's garden, but when he returned after years away, he said, "What are you doing here?" and the children fled. "My own garden is my own garden," said the Giant, "anyone can understand that, and I will allow nobody to play in it but myself." Oscar Wilde's classic tale of forgiveness is one of the most beautiful stories in the English language. With gorgeous illustrations, this is a book for the whole family to treasure.
