Having read this book as a child in grade school
It was one of my favorite stories. I read it over and over. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a cute story for their child or grandchild. I think adults would enjoy it to!
i am sorry it is no long available at libraries.
Everyone today is just to darn sensitive and it takes away from the rest of us who dont see things the same way.
