Grade 1-4- Hague's visual interpretation of Wilde's stories is more formal and traditional than Ed Young's The Happy Prince (S. & . 1992) or P. Craig Russell's comic book version of Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde (NBM, 1992), but it works exceedingly well. His paintings and page decorations are solidly composed and finely detailed; his palette is darker than usual, achieving a note of somberness that complements these sentimental tales of self-sacrifice and misery, friendship and joy.

In this, the first full-length study of Wilde's fairy tales for children, Jarlath Killeen argues that Wilde's stories are neither uniformly conservative nor subversive, but a blend of both.

Oscar Wilde’s fairy tales, namely The Happy Prince, The Selfish Giant and The Young King, which personally I regard as the most typical characteristic style of Oscar Wilde’s works. As Jack Zipes sums up in his Afterword to the Complete Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, The fairy tale form enabled him to employ his elegant style and keen wit to give full expression both to his philosophy of art and his critique of English high society? Wilde was able to articulate his contentious attitudes masked by the innocent fairy tale writer’s persona with its accompanying protection offered by the conventions of fantas. here nothing is ‘real’.

Had this when I was 5 -- 18 years ago. Never stopped reading it and looking at the beautiful illustrations. Read them to my son but somehow lost it while moving houses. This copy was in excellent condition and I couldn't be happier about being able to read it to my two younger ones now.

MY FAVORITE WRITER!!!
Oveley
A tragic fairy tale for older children, about the lavish birthday celebrations of the Spanish Infanta (Princess) and a hideous misshapen dwarf who is brought to perform for her birthday celebrations. He dreams of being the companion of the beautiful Infanta, but then in the palace he sees how ugly he is in a mirror, and dies of a broken heart.

Exquisitely written, in the poetic prose of Oscar Wilde:

'The Lizards also took an immense fancy to him, and when he grew tired of running about and flung himself down on the grass to rest, they played and romped all over him, and tried to amuse him in the best way they could. "Every one cannot be as beautiful as a lizard," "That would be too much to expect. And, though it sounds absurd to say so, he is not really so ugly after all, provided, of course, that one shuts one's and does not look at him." The Lizards where extremely philosophical by nature, and often sat thinking for hours and hours together, when there was nothing else to do, or when the weather was too rainy for them to go out."

I bought this book mainly for its illustration. I had a Oscar Wilde fairy tale book in a different language with a different illustrater, and I loved the style. So I would like to get a nice English edition with beautiful pictures for my own enjoyment and maybe future children. The book is well made. I have no complaints. The drawings are nicely done, just not to my taste
