Oscar Wilde’s the Happy Prince by Elissa Grodin
Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press (August 2006)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1585362646
ISBN-13: 978-1585362646
While flying to a warmer climate, a little swallow stops to rest in the great city. His short stay is extended, however, when he takes refuge at, and then makes friends with, the golden statue of The Happy Prince. From high atop his pedestal in the city park The Happy Prince has a bird’s-eye view of the sufferings of the people of the city. But, he is powerless to do anything. When the Prince entreats his new friend to stay and help him, a lesson in kindness and caring is in store for the little bird.
Beloved since its original publication in 1888, the Oscar Wilde fairy tale is now set against a modern-day backdrop and written for young readers. Stunning, evocative paintings, along with a masterful retelling, breathe new life and meaning into this classic story of mindfulness and compassion for others.
