Nancy and Plum LOVED BUT Bring Hildegard's drawings back!!!,
This review is from: Nancy and Plum (Hardcover)
My eight-year-old grandson and I just began reading the 1952 copyrighted Nancy and Plum together. It is a childhood favorite of my own. I read it several times when I was eight and nine. My grandson LOVES it. However, I was disappointed to see that, in the new edition, the illustrator was replaced. The new illustrations remind me of the Lemony Snicket books which are not what I consider good children's literature. Bring Hildegard Hopkins' drawings back to the book!!!
