A haunting, magical fairy-tale collection, in which Oscar Wilde beautifully evokes (among others) The Happy Prince who was not so happy after all, The Selfish Giant who learned to love little children and The Star Child who did not love his parents as much as he should. Each of the stories shines with poetry and magic and will be enjoyed by children of every age. This is a perfect collection for children young and old, introduced by Markus Zusak, bestselling author of "The Book Thief".

Author information

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. His three volumes of short fiction, including 'The Happy Prince', together with his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray gradually won him a reputation as a modern writer with an original talent, a reputation confirmed and enhanced by the phenomenal success of his society comedies, including Lady Windermere's Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest. Wilde died in Paris in 1900.
