Terrible digital version!! Don't waste your money!!
on May 16, 2014
I use the Kindle Cloud Reader on an iPad. Had to contact Amazon support because I couldn't enlarge the pictures, only to find out the normal pinch-and-zoom feature we are all now trained to use is apparently not allowed by the publisher, Houghton Mifflin. It is a shame you can't enjoy the beautiful artwork of the original. And no matter what size the secondary, newly added text is, it appears clunky and out of sync. You have to squint to actually see the illustrations, and that's a shame because it's what my kid enjoys so much about books. Do not waste your money on the digital version until they do a better job with it. This is likely going to be the case with a lot of wonderful classics, but I'll keep trying until I find a publisher who is doing things better. So while I LOVE the story, I truly HATE what Houghton has done with it digitally. Wake up, publishers!
