A beautiful, color illustrated edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Wonder, with a new afterword from the author. Experience the extraordinary story that inspired the Choose Kind movement, like never before. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid--but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and a blockbuster hit, begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. This beautiful, color illustrated edition includes over twenty-five pieces of original art from Tad Carpenter, the artist behind the original cover. It also includes an essay from R.J. Palacio reflecting on ten years of Wonder and an introduction by Dina Zuckerberg, director of family programs at myFace, a non-profit dedicated to supporting the craniofacial difference community. Experience this extraordinary story like never before.

TOLKIEN'S BOOKSHELF #8 'THE BOOK OF WONDER AND THE LAST BOOK OF WONDER' Lord Dunsany (1878 - 1957) wrote more than eighty books during his career in the early 20th Century. J.R.R. Tolkien enjoyed reading Dunsany's works, a fact which he acknowledged numerous times in his letters. Tolkien was aged twenty when 'The Book of Wonder', illustrated by Sidney Sime, first appeared in bookshops and libraries. Numerous accoutrements of fantasy are found within the realms of 'The Book of Wonder' and 'The Last Book of Wonder', as they are in Middle Earth; talismans, precious metals, jewels, signalling horns, dark, dangerous woods infested with evil spiders and more. A red, glowing, all-seeing eye opens above Dunsany's frightening fantasyland, just as the Eye of Sauron glares across Middle Earth. The short stories in this book are Gothic in style, poetic, mysterious and dream-like - often nightmarish, horrific and almost hallucinatory. Dale J Nelson, in 'Possible Echoes of Blackwood and Dunsany in Tolkien's Fantasy', concludes, 'Tolkien's letters and other sources for his life do not say very much about his recreational reading, but given his lifelong interest in literary fantasy and the parallels adduced above, one seems to be justified in suspecting that Tolkien was indebted to ... Dunsany.'

A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys' is a book written by American author Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 – 1864), and is followed by the sequel, 'Tanglewood Tales'. It is a masterful re-writing of well-known Greek myths, bringing literary classics to children. The stories are all stories within a story; told by Eustace Bright, a college student from Massachusetts, telling the tales to a group of young listeners. It contains the myths of ‘The Gorgon’s Head’, ‘The Golden Touch’, ‘The Paradise of Children’, ‘The Three Golden Apples’, ‘The Miraculous Pitcher’, and ‘The Chimaera’. This edition of Hawthorne’s 'Wonder Book' further contains a series of dazzling colour and black-and-white illustrations – by a pioneer of the craft; Arthur Rackham. One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham’s artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Appearing alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Nathaniel Hawthorne’s captivating storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
