About This Book
A statue of a privileged prince develops a social conscience and a swallow
intends to pause just a moment to assist him. Together they conspire to bring a
modicum of contentment, financial security, and compassion to the beleaguered
poor of a nameless city in northern Europe and both receive their rewards in a
heavenly paradise. In this morality tale originally intended for the childlike
rather than the child, Wilde addresses issues of social injustice, the loss of
innocence, and the redemptive power of love. -- Carol Ann Wilson
