As soon as I saw this edition on a friend's bookshelf I wanted a copy for myself. Loved the cover colour and the repros of the picures inside. Liked the slightly offset type as well. Fantastic edition which for some strange reason was not available at Blackwells in Oxford. Woman there looked at me as if I was mad when I asked about it.

The happy prince was my favourite book when I was little and still is now. It is about a statue of a prince that died and he is always happy, one day a sparrow fell in love so didn't set off to Egypt with his fellow friends, when he set off later than the rest, he got tired and stayed under the statue for shelter. he notices the prince is crying and the prince tells him because he sees the poor and poorly people, so the sparrow helps the prince to try and make these people happy. I enjoyed the book and find it a moving tale.I recommended this book to all ages.

These nine short stories by Oscar Wilde are most wonderful. I have read them several times, at long intervals, and they never pale or lose their magic. I feel that the trgic life of the author is, in a way, reflected in these morality tales in that he obviously put a great deal of himself into his fiction. "The Birthday of the Infanta" is quite heartbreaking. Oscar originally told these tales to his own two young sons, Vyvyan and Cyril, but in my opinion they are not suitable for very young children as much of the point of the stories is rather advanced.

Oscar Wilde shows his skill in writing these simple, yet funny, moving and clever stories. Guaranteed to soften even the hardest heart.
