The kids really enjoyed this book! It's an older story (we read the 1959 printing), and at 64 pages it's also a longer picture book. I was a little concerned that the kids might find the story to be too long and too dated, but that wasn't the case at all. They both really enjoyed it!
I was thrilled with the illustrations. They were beautiful colored pencil drawings, and the way that the colors were blended to create texture, depth, and interest was really pleasing to look at. It's easy to see why my friend Pam
loves this book!
