Aperçu du document

Once upon a time, in a little village, there was
Giant's castle. It had a very big garden. There
were pretty flowers, tall fruit trees and happy birds.
Every day, the children from the village played in
the Giant's garden, but they did not see the Giant.



One day the children were in the garden, when they
heard a big noise ... Boom, Boom, Boom.
They turned and saw a very big pair of boots.
They looked up and they saw the Giant's big red
face. He was not happy. 'This is my garden!' he said.

'These are my trees and my flowers,' he said, 'and
this is my castle! It's all mine!'
'This is a very big garden,' a boy said. He pointed
to a small corner of the garden. 'Please can we play
here? We are very quiet children.' .
'NO!' the Giant answered.

'Oh, he's a selfish Giant!' the children said. 'He has
a big and beautiful garden ... and we have nothing!'
They watched the Giant build the wall higher
and higher. Next, the Giant wrote on the wall. He
wrote 'NO CHILDREN' in very big letters.

Tht; (iiant built a big wall around his garden. 'Now
th<.; children cannot play in my garden!' he smiled.
Ilc made the wall higher and higher.
'Hal' he laughed, 'now the children cannot see my
The children sadly watched the Giant build the

Then it was summer. The children remembered the
Giant's garden.
'We were very happy there,' they said.
But summer did not come to the Giant's garden.
Every day he looked from his window, and every
day it grew colder and cloudier. The garden was
very quiet.

The wind came and blew the leaves off the trees.
The snow came, quickly and quietly and all the
flowers went to sleep.
When the thunder and lightning came, the birds
and butterflies were gone. 'My garden is not
beautiful,' the Giant said, 'it's a sad place.'



One da y, tIll' <;ian t put on his big coat and his boots
and went into till' garden. The wind blew in his face
when he wall, l'd to the high wall. The snow hurt his
The Giant looked over the wall. He was very sad.


'It's sunny over the wall in the village.' he said.
There were leaves on the trees and flowers in the
little gardens. It was summer in the village.
'Why did the summer not come to my garden?'
he asked. 'It's very cold and wintry here.'


The next morning the Giant heard a little bird
singing near his window. He jumped up and looked
at the garden.
It was winter in the garden. But in one small
corner, near the wall, the Giant could see some
flowers and some sun ... and the children.

The children were very sad. They tried to look over
the wall around the Giant's garden. But the wall
was too hq~h .
'I k11ow .. .' Olll' hoy said, ' ... we can make a hole in
the wall!'
'Brilliant!' the children laughed, and they
quickly started to work.

The Giant smiled and slowly gave his hand. The
boy climbed on the Giant's big hand and the Giant
put him in the tree. The flowers started to grow and
the sun started to smile. The children saw them and
they ran happily into the garden.

The children ran from the garden when they saw
the (;ian!. Winter came again.
'Come hack!' the Giant said, 'I'm sorry. It's a sad,
cold place when there arc no friends.'
One boy came hack into the garden. He was a
very small boy.
'Hello, little friend,' the Giant said.

The children played there every day, but the little
boy did not come back.
Years later, when the Giant was old and ill, the
little boy came once again.
'You came,' the Giant said.
'Yes,' the little boy answered, 'to say goodbye.'
'Thank you, little friend,' the happy Giant said.

Boom, boom, boom
A big pair of boots
Boom, boom, boom
A big, red face

It's summer over there
It's winter over here
Summer didn't come
To the giant's garden

This is my garden
These are my trees
This is my castle
It's all mine

The wind came, the snow
Thunder and lightning too
The birds are gone, the
butterflies are gone
Summer didn't come
To the giant's garden

Boom, boom, boom
A big pair of boots
Boom, boom, boom
The giant's red face

It's summer over there
It's winter over here
Summer didn't come
To the giant's garden

When the children came back
To the garden
The flowers started to grow
When the children came back
To the garden
The sun started to smile
