The Happy Prince and Other Tales (also sometimes called The Happy Prince and Other Stories) is an 1888 collection of stories for children by Oscar Wilde. It is most famous for The Happy Prince, the short tale of a metal statue who becomes friends with a migratory bird. Together they bring some happiness to others in life and in "death." A very nice reading, many thanks.

Well read, and good bedtime stories with a Wilde twist, of cours

For the kid who said that this is too-sad. You should grow up since the world is dark- If you love dramatic stuff, this is worth reading as it shows the reality of life hidden in fairytales.
