The Happy Prince and Other Tales - by Oscar Wilde

From the Publisher
Oscar Wilde's collection of fairy stories are among the greatest and most poignant classics for children and adults alike. Humour, pathos, delightful little characters abound in the stories of The Happy Prince and the Swallow who agrees to keep him company despite approaching winter; the Selfish Giant, who doesn't want children playing in his garden, and the Remarkable Rocket. In addition, there are those who are not so familiar - The Star Child, The Young King and The Devoted Friend.
About the Author: The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde once said, "Anybody can make history. Only a great man can write it." From his celebrity in Victorian London to his authorship of fiction, drama, and poetry that uniquely captured his era, it's fair to say that Wilde succeeded on both counts.
