This is such a great book for kids! I grew up having it read to me and have passed it along to all my nieces and nephews, who all love it as well. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous (though, be warned a few are a little bloody, I've found that kids don’t notice or care, it’s the adults that have more of an issue). The author also did a great job of condensing the story down for a younger audience while still making it coherent and true to the original story. I still treasure my original copy.
