Synopsis: A once selfish giant welcomes the children to his previously forbidden garden and is eventually rewarded by an unusual little child.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-6 Although the illustrations for this version of Wilde's classic parable are not as visually affecting as Lisbeth Zwerger's delicate watercolors (Picture Book Studio, 1984), children will be drawn to the color and humor of Mansell's drawings. Mansell (like Zwerger) leaves Wilde's enchanting text intact. Mansell's portrayal of the crochety giant is non-frightening and full of humorous detail. Young children might find the last part of the story frightening, and the crucifixion wounds might require an explanation that would be uncomfortable to some adults. This is a beautifully written tale, however, and Mansell's illustrations are not at all fearsomeeven the full-page illustration of the dead giant is gentle, and the stigmata might be missed by an untrained eye. With these cautionary notes, this version as well as Zwerger's complement Wilde's powerful, moving tale, although Zwerger's is still a first choice.
