A giant builds a high wall around his beautiful garden to prevent the children from playing in it. However, he is taught a valuable lesson when spring does not return and the garden remains in winter all year round. One morning the unusual sound of birdsong and the sight of a small, frail child trying to climb a tree reminds the giant how selfish he has been. He knocks down the wall, spring arrives and the giant is happy that his garden is now free for all.

This enchanting sung-through musical was written especially for a large cast of young people and enjoyed three successful seasons at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford in 1995, 1999 and 2002. It has great opportunity for lots of chorus and solo work, which can be easily adapted according to how many children are available.
