In the Garden of the Selfish Giant
Published by Dramatic Publishing
0 Male 4 Female
But into the garden come Allison and Brianna - one, a funny, warm and insightful Hospice worker; the other, an imaginative nine-year-old neighbor who hates unhappy endings and never lets the facts stand in the way of a good story, not even her rollicking rendition of Oscar Wilde's fairy tale about The Selfish Giant - a frightening and forbidding character who reminds her of Maggie's grandmother
Eventually, Allison and Brianna help unravel Maggie's bad mood, and mother/daughter rifts are mended
As summer draws to a close, Grandmother's expected death occurs, and, to Brianna's dismay, Maggie and Susan prepare to return home
Unhappy endings can't always be avoided, but understanding, forgiveness and friendship do eventually blossom like the roses in this garden of the "selfish giant"
