About the Author:

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864), though best known for his novels and short stories for adults, also produced several works for children, including a companion volume to A Wonder Book called Tanglewood Tales (1853).

Review:

`An excellent edition of this seminal story by Hawthorne, with a helpful introduction to these tales, and excellent explanatary notes.' Lionel Kelly, University of Reading 'This collection offers a good selection of the well known and the less available tales. The introduction presents a stimulating analysis of Hawthorne's art and hios view of the role/identity of the writer. The notes na dbibliographical details anr excellent.' K.M.Parkinson, Roehampton Institute of Higher Education. 'Although I don't expect to use the text myself at the moment, I'm greatly pleased to see these early examples of the genre being published in so accessible a form.' B.D.Ingraham, Teesside Polytechnic.
