From the immortal beauty and wit of Oscar Wilde comes this classic children's story of selfless love. At the center of a poor village, the statue of the Happy Prince resides, free from all sorrow or pain. As he watches over the suffering citizens below, the statue's heart breaks for their plight. When a helpful swallow lands upon the statue's shoulder, the two conspire to help the struggling people in any way they can, sacrificing their own happiness and light to save those around them. Paired with beautiful illustrations from the team at Stela, Wilde shares a touching tale of the power of gifting and sacrifice.
