Great edition of a classic
This hardback edition is a fantastic value; grab this over the paperback edition. my four year-old daughter loved it. it was her first "real" chapter book. we'd read a series or two of the rainbow fairies and a disney collection of princess stories, but this (along with wind and the willows, also superb) was the first classic. she balked at first (complaining that there weren't enough pictures), but soon she was begging for "just one more chapter, please!" the afterward is more geared towards adults, but is still a nice bonus. good stuff.
