Description

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.
