The Selfish Giant - Oscar Wilde (full color) fabric by scrummy on Spoonflower - custom fabric

More about this preview. Help_icon

My mum bought my daughter a wonderful book of Oscar Wilde kids stories when she was very little. They were among our faves at bedtime. Stories are just the best thing about bedtime, yes? Stories and cuddles :) My design is inspired by the fairy tale by Oscar Wilde 'The Selfish Giant' (published 1888). A lovely tale about doing the right thing. The Selfish Giant owns a beautiful garden which he builds a wall around to stop the children playing in it. The garden falls into perpetual winter. One day the children find a gap in the wall and the garden blooms again except for one corner. He helps the small boy in the winter corner up into the tree's branches "It is your garden now, little children". He knocks down the wall. He does not see the small boy he helped again and this makes him sad. Then one winter morning the giant sees the boy in a part of the garden in full blossom. The child is the Christ child. "You let Me play once in your garden, today you shall come with Me to My garden, which is Paradise." The giant dies happy.
