About the Author
"First published in 1888, Oscar Wilde's classic short story of a miserable giant and his magical winter garden is reinvented with new depth, emotion, and an explosion of color. Clever details add modern touches while paying homage to the original tale of how a small child's friendship slowly melts a giant's cold heart. Christian themes of love, forgiveness, and sacrifice are clear throughout as the frozen garden gradually transforms into a beautiful riot of blossoms."
- Michelle Schingler, Foreword Reviews
"The richly sentimental 19th-century tale gets a 21st-century setting."
" This remains a hopeful--and strangely timely--story about generosity and redemption."
