Magical. Touching. Wildly imaginative. Four Oscar Wilde tales to delight your inner child.
Oscar Wilde’s genius never blazed more brightly than in The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Remarkable Rocket, and The Selfish Giant. In these tales, created to delight and inspire the child in each of us, he conjures a fantastical world in which statues, birds and even fireworks have the power of eloquent speech. And yet, in the end, his stories are about the most human things of all: kindness, loss, and love.
