Publisher's Summary

When the Giant's away, the children will play. That's what happens in Oscar Wilde's classic tale The Selfish Giant. Kids of all ages will love listening to this lively performance and will unwittingly learn an important lesson about selfishness and overcoming adversity.


Audible Editor Reviews

Few people think of Oscar Wilde as an author of children's books but in 1888, Wilde published the The Happy Prince and Other Tales a compendium of children's tales and poems. "The Selfish Giant" is one of those stories. Told in the style of fables and fairy tales, this parable relates the legend of a great giant and his beautiful garden. David Ian Davies' performance is endearing and authentic. Produced with children in mind, Davies has a special way of appealing to young listeners.
