The best short story for children ever written,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Selfish Giant (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
This is my favourite short story and has been since I was eight. It still has the power to move me to tears. Almost all Oscar Wilde's fairy stories have a sad, poignant quality to them and this is one of the best. I never tire of reading it.
This beautifully illustrated version brings this wonderful story to children of today. I can't recommend it highly enough. Make sure you have the tissues handy, though!
