Unless you have a really patient child, however, I wouldn't recommend this edition for sit-on-the-lap reading. The illustrations aren't particularly engaging. Rather, I would let your kids sit down with some blank paper and a box of crayons and ask them to draw their own pictures while you read out loud to them. Or read to them at bedtime when their eyes are closed. These are the kinds of stories to be savored by the senses rather than "follow-along-while-I-read."
It's not for the conventional. If you like a poetic imagination you will love these characters, these sentences, and the logic of a poet's world.
If you like moralistic lit or overly realistic lit for your poor children, don't bother with this beautiful masterpiece.
