The Selfish Giant (2009):
The Giant returns from his 7 year holiday with the Cornish Ogre to find children playing in his garden. He builds a high wall to keep them out but the garden is then invaded by raucous characters that plague him. Spring never returns and it is always winter until one day the giant meets a boy who needs his help.
“It is truly magical to see children (some of whom I thought prior to today were very short on confidence) performing so brilliantly and clearly really, really enjoying themselves and having enormous fun. I think you are teaching the children skills that will be so invaluable during the course of their lives. Thank you very, very much.”
(K. Rowland, ‘The Selfish Giant’)
