7 out of 10

I've gotten rather fond of Russell's illustrating style and have been picking up his books when I find them. I got this fair-condition ex-library softcover of this lovely illustrated version of a couple of Oscar Wilde's lesser-known stories from Better World Books.

I'd read "The Remarkable Rocket" before, but don't recall encountering "The Young King" - they make a nice pair, as "King" is rather intense and dark, with a strong spiritual theme, while "Rocket" is a sarcastically funny take on the sin of pride. The illustrations support and complement the stories, and while I'd always recommend reading Wilde's original text, this book is a nice introduction.
