About this title


The Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde"" is as the title would suggest a collection of whimiscal tales by Oscar Wilde. This collections includes the following short stories: The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant, The Devoted Friend, The Remarkable Rocket, The Young King, The Birthday of the Infanta, The Fisherman and his Soul, and The Star-child. Readers of all ages will be delighted by these fanciful tales.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-- Hague's visual interpretation of Wilde's stories is more formal and traditional than Ed Young's The Happy Prince (S. & S., 1992) or P. Craig Russell's comic book version of Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde (NBM, 1992), but it works exceedingly well. His paintings and page decorations are solidly composed and finely detailed; his palette is darker than usual, achieving a note of somberness that complements these sentimental tales of self-sacrifice and misery, friendship and joy. The pictures are lush and velvety, burnished with gold. The collection includes all nine of the pieces Wilde wrote for his sons--"The Remarkable Rocket," "The Devoted Friend," and "The Nightingale and the Rose," appear alongside the more familiar "The Happy Prince," "The Selfish Giant," and "The Birthday of the Infanta." This handsome, well-made volume is eminently suitable for gift-giving; libraries looking for the complete set of these tales need look no further. --Linda Boyles, Alachua County Library District, Gainesville, FL
