About this item
A complete collection of the prize-winning and greatly acclaimed adaptations of Oscar Wilde’s works, this specially priced set brings each story to life with brilliant illustrations by a master of comic art. Each of the paperback volumes of Wilde’s compelling tales are assembled here with close to 200 pages of exquisite comics, including such classics as ?The Selfish Giant” who won’t let the children play in his garden until the dire consequences make him see the light, ?The Devoted Friend” on what constitutes real friendship, ?The Nightingale and the Rose” a stirring story of sacrifice to love with a cruel twist, ?The Birthday of the Infanta” where a hideous dwarf discovers that his good humor and tricks may not be the reason he receives such attention, and ?The Happy Prince” where a once spoiled young prince finds what it means to make sacrifices. Perfect for middle school students as an introduction to the world-famous author, the dazzling illustrations in this book suit the finely crafted prose of Wilde.
