I received this book as a very young child from my beloved grandfather. It was immediately my favorite and still is to this day. The stories and pictures captured my heart, have stayed with me always, and the book is my most prized possession. Luckily, I still possess that copy, but it's worn to pieces, the hardcover long gone, even some pages missing. I never in a million years thought I could get a more pristine copy, though my sentiment will always lie with the original. What a wonderful feeling to be able to purchase a complete copy for my future children (and me!). Thank you Golden Classics!
