When Oscar Wilde’s stories for children were first published in 18888, they achieved instant succes. Their unique lyricism and sensitivity, combined with Wilde’s wit and humor, have ensured that, for successive generations, their appeal has never diminished.
In this superb edition, six of Oscar Wilde’s most popular stories for children have been selected and illustrated with exquisite, full colour paintings by P.J. Lynch. The stories are written in richly contrasting tones and styles: the poignancy of the happy prince and the nightingale and the rose: the sharp humor of the remarkable rocket and the devoted friend; the moving sentiments of the selfish giant and the young king.
Each story is illustrated with imaginative watercolors, each providing a vivid and haunting accompaniment to the text. This very special gift book will entertain and enchant children for years to come.
