One can add little if any to this children’s classic. However, this edition has gorgeous art work! It is beautifully detailed and awash with colors that complement and bring the pages to life. I was attracted to the cover and delighted to find the inside pages did not disappoint me. There was no way that I could just thumb through the pages for the art work drew me in. I knew when I picked it up that it had to be read to fully appreciate the beautiful, sometimes delicate and other times bold (yet not detracting) art. I thoroughly enjoyed my read!
