Editorial Reviews

The Devoted Friend is a satirical fairy tale by the legendary Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde. Narrated with childlike mirth in eloquent British tongue by David Ian Davies, this is the fanciful story of a disagreement between a duck and a rat that leads to a linnet’s recounting of a moral story about a supposedly devoted friend, who ultimately was anything but.
This wonderful tale, told with a critical perspective on the true meaning of friendship, should appeal to both children and grownups alike.

Publisher's Summary

Although he intended his audience to be children, Oscar Wilde's story, The Devoted Friend, has appealed to people of all ages. Listen as a green linnet tells the charming tale of Hans, an honest, good-humored fellow with a funny, round face and his friend Hugh, the rich Miller. How the Miller exploits little Hans and takes advantage of his kindness brings a very clear message to every one of the pitfalls of trust and devotion.
