Oscar Wilde Harry Woodgate

About the book

Gloriously adapted and illustrated by the winner of the British Book Awards Nibbie for Children’s Illustrated Book of the Year and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.

Swallow is a homeless boy who’s just arrived in the big city. He settles down for the night under the golden and bejewelled statue of the Happy Prince, yet when he looks up he sees the statue is weeping. What could a golden Happy Prince possibly have to feel sad about?


But from his view high above the city, the prince can see the suffering of the poor. He asks little Swallow to take his jewels and gold to the people who need them most. Can the statue and the boy find a way to bring happiness to everyone in the city?
