Meet the Author

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet who delighted Victorian England with his legendary wit. He found critical and popular success with his scintillating plays, chiefly The Importance of Being Earnest, while his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, scandalized readers. Imprisoned for two years for homosexual behavior, Wilde moved to France after his release, where he died destitute.

This is a classic story and deserves all the praise it receives for the author. However I was disappointed that there were absolutely no illustrations. Thus it is not as good of a "read-aloud" for younger children. I preferred the one I took out from the library that had pictures of the giant, the garden and the kids.
