Summary

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day.

This audiobook brings together two of his well known short stories. In 'The Selfish Giant', a once selfish giant welcomes the children to his previously forbidden garden and is eventually rewarded by an unusual little child.

'The Happy Prince' tells the tale of a metal statue who becomes friends with a migratory bird. Together they bring some happiness to others in life and in "death".
