A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys (Everyman's Library Children's Classics Series) Six legends of Greek mythology, retold for children by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Included are The Gorgon 19s Head, The Golden Touch, The Paradise of Children, The Three Golden Apples, The Miraculous Pitcher, and The Chimaera. In 1838, Hawthorne suggested to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow that they collaborate on a story for children based on the legend of the Pandora 19s Box, but this never materialized. He wrote A Wonder Book between April and July 1851, adapting six legends most freely from Charles Anton 19s A Classical Dictionary (1842). He set out deliberately to 1Cmodernize 1D the stories, freeing them from what he called 1Ccold moonshine 1D and using a romantic, readable style that was criticized by adults but proved universally popular with children. With full-color illustrations throughout by Arthur Rackham.
