EMPEROR'S NIGHTINGALE AND OTHER FEATHERY TALES

EDITED BY JANE RAY    Book Number: 85719    Product format: Hardback

The Happy Prince, The Owl and the Pussycat, Noah's Ark, The Golden Swan, Jorinda and Joringel, Heron and Hummingbird, The Jackdaw of Rheims, The Firebird and Magpie Song are among the dozen magical bird stories in this wonderful anthology, all of which have a striking variation on Aesop's Fable 'The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg'. Originally written by Oscar Wilde in 1888, The Happy Prince is one of his intensely moving fairy tales of a kind-hearted little swallow. Some pages are golden, some bright white, some burnt orange, some dark blue, and there are ravens and nightingales and linnets and doves and many other animal friends in these irresistible poems and short stories. The exquisite illustrations by Jane Ray are woodcuts, lino prints and line art, often in silhouette and in colour against the coloured paper. 174 heavyweight large pages fairly large print for children ages 8 to adult collectors.
