2 editions published in 1978 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der hartherzige Riese: Nach sieben Jahren kehrt der Riese nach Hause zurück und findet in seinem Garten spielende Kinder vor. Wütend jagt er sie weg und baut eine riesige Mauer um sein Land. Von da an scheint in seinem Garten das Leben verschwunden zu sein. Weder der Frühling oder Sommer, noch der Herbst lassen sich darin erblicken. Der Winter hält alles mit eisiger Hand im Griff. Als eines Tages die vertriebenen Kinder durch ein Loch in der Mauer in den Garten zurückgelangen, fängt sich das Leben wieder darin zu regen an, dem Riesen wird es warm ums Herz und er beginnt zu verstehen. Um 1880 schrieb Oscar Wilde dieses Kunstmärchen, das davon erzählt, wie ein verhärtetes Herz sich öffnet und wieder menschlicher wird. 1984 wurde dieses Buch das erste Mal herausgebracht und ist nun aufs Neue erschienen. Lisbeth Zwerger hat die Bilder dazu gemalt, welche die Dynamik des Lebens der Kinder einerseits und dessen Stillstand in der Gestalt des vereinsamten Riesen andererseits, in sehr zarten, ungemein lebendig wirkenden Bildern wiedergibt. Ein wunderbarer Klassiker mit Bildern von beeindruckender Lebendigkeit. Ab 4 Jahren, *****, Beatrice Balint
