  • Beautiful Edition

    I bought this edition as a Christmas present for my girlfriend and both of us were thrilled when it arrived. The book is just beautiful with interesting annotations and vibrant, full-color drawings. This a wonderful addition to any book collection, for a child who's never read the book before or an adult who remembers the tale fondly from his or her own childhood.
