The story also contains a warm humour that young and old will enjoy and so is a gentle introduction to satire for those having it read to them as a bedtime story! (Its town councillors are probably still arguing.)
Cassie Seddon provides an entertaining and personal 'editor's introduction' and Peter Davies has created a memorable image of The Happy Prince in his 'golden' days.
