ABRIDGED! Watch out!
on November 2, 2013
ABRIDGED!!!! The title of this book on Amazon is "The Secret Garden (Dover Children's Thrift Classics)." I did not notice until I received the book and was shocked at how thin it was that I saw that it said on the cover "Adapted for young reader" and then looked on Amazon and saw that in the faded print, *after* the title, it says "abridged."
Why anyone would abridge a classic is beyond me. It's not like the abridgers took the story and made it into a picture book for three year olds. They just abridged the text.
This will be going back. I am very disappointed.
