"Good presentation of a classic"
David A. Bryant
(This is a review of the Kindle reader version.)
This edition contains the original illustrations, which adds to the authenticity and charm of this version and added to the pleasure of reading it.
As an adult who enjoyed the "Wicked" book series, I am not sure I ever actually read this story as a child. Certainly I watched the film many times. Reading it now, i can appreciate the style, the writing, the charm, and the enchantment of the story.
i recommend this for children, for adults who want the background for "Wicked," and for parents and grandparents to read to children. It has an old-fashioned simple yet fantastic approach that i hope and expect will always appeal to children.
