In this collection of beautiful and poignant tales, Oscar Wilde employs his characteristic grace and wit and reveals a softer contemplative side to his writing. Written for his two sons, the stories have an enduring appeal for children, combining, as they do, a moral message in a fantastical framework. Along with 'The Happy Prince', the tale of the compassionate statue who cannot bear to witness the suffering of the townspeople he watches over, this volume includes 'The Nightingale and the Rose', 'The Devoted Friend', 'The Remarkable Rocket', and 'The Selfish Giant'. Thanks to the genius of Oscar Wilde, each of these stories is unique and unforgettable.
