Hmm... I'm not sure how I fall into this book. But the fact that you should know, the book is my daughter's. Her father bought it for her in away to pass down his wonderful experience (of reading this book) to her. But she never touch it since. I don't know how it get into my hands, but I guess it was due to the written author on the cover - Oscar Wilde. This is my third book of his, for this year. I am not a fan to Oscar, but his book is never disappointing. I propose you to read this handy boo ...more

Livro de leitura obrigatória na escola de minha filha e obviamente li também. Parece uma obra de arte, tamanha a beleza das ilustrações. Traz a história de um gigante que é dono do mais lindo jardim. Mas ele proíbe a entrada das crianças e com isso o jardim se torna triste e dominado por um inverno eterno. Até que o gigante recebe a visita de uma criança muito especial, transformando tudo ao seu redor.
Lindo e tocante, com toque de mensagem religiosa (indicado em escola católica).

Simple yet wonderful. I could almost feel some Krylov in there. Selfish Giant - my favourite.

I realized both in "The Happy Prince" in this book and "The Nightingale and the Rose," the birds are important roles, like sidekicks, but they are not appreciated in this world.
