(5 Sterne)

The happy prince has always been one of my favourite stories, and it always makes me cry. This reading is especially good at that. the readers really bring the characters to life. I laughed oit loud at the devoted friend and the remarkable rocket and I cried for the nightingale, the giant, the prince and the swallow.
