I expected a 60th anniversary edition to be more of a traditional hardback size, AND better quality that would make you think it would last a long time.
I don't have time to replace it - am giving it as a gift to a 10yr old today, but am very tempted to tell her it didn't come in yet. Steer clear of this 60th anniversary version and look for the Aladdin hardback version. You'll be happier, in my opinion.
My only complaint is the claim that this is a library edition. The book looks just like the one in the picture, but after I opened it I questioned the library edition description. It looks like a paperback inside with a nice hardcover outside. Maybe the pages are made out of recycled paper or something, but they look cheesy and are definitely not of the high quality that would stand up to library usage.
For this reason and this reason only, I am giving the book 4 stars instead of 5, my apologies to the author's family. My criticism regarding the quality of the paper the book is printed on does not reflect Marguerite Henry's legacy. My only wish is that today's children have the opportunity to read this fine book whatever the paper quality. Now I feel bad about the 4 stars, but since I can't rate it 4.5, this will have to do.
