A major, beautifully-illustrated collection of Oscar Wilde's favourite children's tales known and loved throughout the world. It includes: * The Happy Prince * The Selfish Giant * The Nightingale and the Rose This gorgeous production brings Wilde's magical stories to a whole new generation.
This gorgeous new edition of Oscar Wilde – Stories for Children, with Charles Robinson’s beautifully coloured illustrations, will make a fantastic gift to be treasured by a new generation of children.
A devoted swallow stays on through winter with the golden statue of the Happy Prince, bringing the Prince’s help to those in need. A romantic nightingale gives a young student the red rose he needs in order to win his love. A Selfish Giant learns the beauty of generosity as he shares his garden with the children who love to play there.
In these three wonderfully moving fables, Oscar Wilde shows us compassion, loyalty, generosity, love, charity and beauty as well as poverty, greed and vanity. Here, art imitates life – there isn’t always a 'happy ever after' – but Wilde’s writing is as enchanting and captivating as ever, making these stories truly unforgettable.
