Irish composer and singer, Michael Gallen, narrated one of Oscar Wilde's most beautiful stories, 'The Selfish Giant' from Wilde's beloved collection for children 'The Happy Prince and Other Tales'. The tale tells the story of the grumpy giant who built a wall around his beautiful garden to keep children out. From then on, it remained Winter in the garden as no other season would venture there without the happiness and spirit of the children. Then one morning a special child brought Spring back and the giant's heart melted with the snow. The Selfish Giant audiobook as read by Michael Gallen will be available soon to download via Audible, but for now here's a sneak preview.
