A timeless classic of deceptively simplistic and fantastical stories
Originally published by Oscar Wilde in 1888, The Happy Prince and Other Tales is a collection of five short stories packed with heartfelt meaning for children and adults alike. This is a fine new edition of moral tales of selflessness, friendship, sacrifice, and kindness—and the dangers of not having them.
Wilde’s eloquent and poetic writing makes these stories evoke a world in which tenderness and compassion are often endangered by greed, selfishness, and callousness. This new edition includes a new foreword by award-winning author Rick Wilber, and appeals to an entirely new generation of children, while imparting wisdom that withstands the test of time.
