Review:

"The timeless morality tale ... is simply but effectively retold in this superbly illustrated edition. The contrast between the apocalyptic desolation of the giant’s nightmarish isolation and the rich vitality of the restored, child-filled garden is dramatic and filled with telling detail, and the gradual realisation of the havoc he has wreaked makes the giant’s conversion quite moving. Easily understood by even the youngest of readers." ( Daily Mail)

"Deacon breathes new life into Wilde’s timeless fairytale in a stunning new abridged version of the classic" ( The Bookseller)

"Alexis Deacon has interpreted, and enriched, this much-loved Oscar Wilde fairytale with stunning new illustrations. The transformation of the giant from selfish to caring is beautifully realised" ( Carousel)

"

Deacon has abridged the story here for early years children and his bold, atmospheric illustrations paint a memorable portrait of the dark and light shades of this timeless story which emphasises the power of love and the importance of sharing and forgiveness.

Beautifully designed and produced, this marvellous adaptation is an ideal gift for all young readers.

" ( Driffield Today)

"Illustrator Alexis Deacon has been rightly praised for his beautiful drawings, and he has put his talents to good use by breathing life into Oscar Wilde’s timeless fairytale The Selfish Giant." ( Burnley Express)

Book Description:

The classic Oscar Wilde story is now beautifully illustrated and abridged by Alexis Deacon.
