The rating for this book is a bit odd.

While I love "The Canterville Ghost" (that was my first encounter with Wilde ever), I'm not all that convinced by some of the other stories. This makes it three stars for the stories.

The paintings however were really beautiful and well-fitting, and illustrator Nicole Stewart seems to exhibit every ounce of glee in her paintings that Oscar had in his writing. This lead me to up the rating to 4 stars.

I was close to deducting the excess star again, though - for the UTTER IDIOCY of putting Stephen's notes not as comments after the story, but as an introduction at the beginning. There are people who haven't read it yet and don't want to know what will happen!!!
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
