“Dear Prince, I must leave you, but I will never forget you, and next spring I will bring you back two beautiful jewels in place of those you have given away. The ruby shall be redder than a red rose, and the sapphire shall be as blue as the great sea.”

A swallow meets the statue of the late "Happy Prince", which houses the soul of the original prince, who in reality had never experienced true happiness. The statue inspires the swallow to selfless acts.

Reviews from Amazon:

"I often have long conversations all by myself, and I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying." 

Does the imagery of children playing in the giant's garden, with a sad boy in the corner, rouse forgotten childhood memories? Or how about the bird plucking the sapphire eyes from the crying statue of a prince? I forgot that I had forgotten these tales and now all that childhood awe is flooding back. 

The worlds created are so vividly detailed and immersed, you care so much about the characters you have to keep reading to find out how it ends. But Oscar's heroes don't always get happy endings - a shock to my Disney-weaned offspring ("I don't get it, why did the nightingale die for nothing?").

Download it for free and lose yourself in some of the best children's stories ever written.
If you have never read these stories before, then you must NOW. I discovered them in my late teens (I'm nearly 70 now) and now, long after my paperback copy has fallen apart, to have them on my fantastic Kindle means I can enjoy them at 'the touch of a switch'! They make me laugh and cry in equal amounts. Enjoy!!!
Having read these lovely little tales after finishing Dorian Gray it was a nice change :) I've only recently started reading Oscar Wilde so i think that this is a nice addition to the other 2 works i've read. (so far)
