These special fairy tales, which Oscar Wilde made up for his own sons, include "The Happy Prince", who was not as happy as he seemed; "The Selfish Giant", who learned to love little children; and, "The Star Child", who suffered bitter trials when he rejected his parents...Often whimsical and sometimes sad, they all shine with poetry and magic.
