The Giant comes home -- Always winer -- The hole in the wall -- The boy in the tree -- The most beautiful flowrs -- The wounds of love.

'It's my garden,' says the Giant. 'People must understand. Nobody can play here, only me!' So the children leave, and the Selfish Giant puts a wall around his garden. After that, it's always winter there. Later, the Giant feels sorry for a young boy in the snow. He knocks down the garden wall, and the children, and the spring, come back. But where is the young boy now? And how can the Giant find him again.
