The Selfish Giant returns home, after being away for seven years, to find children playing in his beautiful garden. It is a garden where the sun always shines and the birds sing. The Giant objects to the children being there and builds a wall to keep them out. From that moment on the garden, which once boasted pink blossoms and peach trees, falls into a perpetual Winter; for no other season will venture there without the children. Until a special little boy comes into the Giant's wintry world.
The Happy Prince is one of Oscar Wilde's best loved stories. The Happy Prince refers to a wonderful statue who stands above a city rift with poverty. The Happy Prince meets a swallow who is due to fly to Egypt and recruits him to help the people he looks over.
