Description

The beautiful lyrical prose of Wilde is gorgeously rendered by one of comic art's masters

 

A complete collection of the prize-winning and greatly acclaimed adaptations of Oscar Wilde’s works, this book brings each story to life with brilliant illustrations by a master of comic art. Each of the clothbound, jacketed volumes of Wilde’s compelling tales are assembled here with close to 200 pages of exquisite comics, including such classics as “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 pleased 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 timeless writings of Wilde. Additional stories in this remarkable set include “The Remarkable Rocket,” “The Star Child,” “The Selfish Giant,” and “The Young King.”
