Story great; Formatting horrible.
on May 22, 2014
I've loved this story for over 30 years and have enjoyed reading it to my own children and to my classes at school. This morning I purchased it for my grandson's Kindle Fire and was eager to read it to him when he got home from pre-school. However, when I read it, I was quite disappointed. It is not formatted for Kindle. Instead, it appears that the publisher and seller, MacMillan, has just scanned the print edition and compiled the jpeg files into this edition. That means that the text is tiny, tiny, tiny, and cannot be enlarged, nor can the pictures because it was merely scanned. Not only that but there is text missing, causing incomplete sentences and missing parts. Additionally, there are a couple of pages that have the text super imposed on other text. Reading this was more like a frustrating puzzle than a visit with a favorite book. I have requested a refund and am purchasing the paperback copy, instead.
