Strange and wonderful things happen in the short stories in this book. The reader is taken into a world of kings and queens, princes and princesses, giants and dwarfs, and talking animals. Exciting and amusing, happy and sad, these are stories for people of all ages.

The stories were written by the great Irish writer Oscar Wilde. Wilde loved his children very much, and he enjoyed telling them stories. Many of the stories in this book show what a child’s life is like. Other stories are about adults - or animals. Wilde is very good at showing people’s feelings. The people and animals in these stories are often in danger or in love. They are suffering, or they are wonderfully happy, and the reader understands their feelings. But this is a magical world, and anything can happen.
