The Selfish Giant

(1978)
A Picture Book by

 
 
While the giant is away, the local children fill his garden with their games and laughter, spilling over the green grass and colorful flowers, perching in the peach trees, and singing with the birds. When the giant returns, he throws them out, declaring that the garden is his and only his to enjoy. Quickly, the garden withers and winter takes hold, only to be broken by the return of a solitary child longing to play in what used to be paradise. The child's sadness melts the giant's heart, and he realizes what a selfish giant he has been. He opens up his garden but must wait a lifetime to once again see the fragile boy who reminded him about generosity and love.
