I got this book for our new son to read to him before bed time. I remember this book as a kid and it brought back so many memories and I want my kid to have those fun memories as he grows up as well. At this price point, I couldn't refuse to get it. The book came new, extremely stiff, and hadn't even been cracked open. The illustrations are the same as I remembered them as a kid. The story is a bit varied, but has the same context as the original. I highly recommend for people who have kids in the house.
