Selfish Giant
The Selfish Giant written by Oscar Wilde, it is about a giant that had the most beautiful garden but wouldn't let anyone play in it. He was very selfish with his garden and wouldn't let any little children play in it. One day he had a change of heart and decided to let the kids play in his garden because, the giant became miserable when the garden wasn't beautiful anymore, because it stayed winter all year round with snow, hail, and the north wind.

After finding the kids in his garden he built a wall around his garden to keep them out of it. When spring came to the rest of the country it was still winter in the garden with snow, hail, and the north wind. He was very upset that spring hadn't come. The children decided that they would get into the garden even though the giant didn't want them there, so they made a little whole in the wall so that they could get through.

When he looked out he was surprise, because the children were all in the branches of the trees that had bloomed with small beautiful flowers.

The giant ran outside to play with the children because; the giant had a change of heart when spring came to his garden. When the giant came outside, all of the children took off running outside of the garden terrified that the giant was upset at them.
