The "Wonder Book" by Nathaniel Hawthorne is a children's book that retells the stories of six tales: The Gorgon's Head, The Golden Touch, The Paradise of Children, The Three Golden Apples, The Miraculous Pitcher, and The Chimaera. This book is also notable for the beautiful color artwork of Arthur Rackham, which is widely collected and highly sought-after.
