These fairy tales, which Oscar Wilde made up for his own sons, include “The Happy Prince,” who was not as happy as he seemed, “The Selfish Giant,” who learned to love little children, and “The Star-Child,” who suffered bitter trials when he rejected his parents. Often whimsical and sometimes sad, they all shine with poetry and magic.
