The Happy Prince From the Fairy Tale by Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde, Jane Ray

Oscar Wilde's moving story of the relationship between a magnificent statue and a little swallow is brought to life by Jane Ray's stunning artwork. Perched on high, the prince's statue can see all the misery of the city and begs the swallow to pluck off his gold leaf and distribute it amongst the poor. First published over one hundred years ago, the fairy tale is recognised as an enchanting masterpiece and this classic picture book is bound to be enjoyed by adults and children alike and treasured forever.
