Beautiful illustrations, me and my daughters age 4 and 7 are enjoying the story very much.
I read this edition so that I would know the outline story of a book I should have read years and years ago! I was entranced and enthralled and am now well into the original. What a find! It's beautifully written and gives a flavour of the strength of the main character and the weakness of her father. I'll go on to read all the others in the series.
