My son (aged almost 7) was given a copy of Peter Rabbit at School to read for homework. I was appalled by this - a "modernised" version with poorly written text and inferior pictures and resolved to get a proper version. This is almost it - the only change from the original was the addition of one or two extra illustrations which were originally supplied, but which were for various reasons left out. Young Dylan thought it was great - praise indeed from a very critical young man. The book arrived promptly and was well-packed. If you've never read Peter Rabbit; well your education has been neglected - read it now, and chuckle. And for children able to read, the large legible type and whimsical illustrations are a joy and the hard cover will ensure longevity. At this price, an excellent buy.
