I love this book, I adore it, it is so much part of my childhood I don't know if I would actually be the same person I am today. My original copy died a death at the hands of a child who loved it so much she was always reading it. I bought this version for a friends child and I hope that one day he will look back and love it just as much. More recently I was walking with a friend and discovered a similar passion for it from him as well.
