Today I received the "reprint", and much to my disgust, over 1/3 of the stories are omitted, including "Mutiny" (on of the best in the book!!) "Three Little Paddles" "Marooned" "Sailor's Hornpipe" "The Big Fish" "Sailor Yarn" "The Wicked, Wicked Pirate" (one of the best!! in the original) "Discovery" "Becalmed" "What Will You Be Billy Boy?" "Sea Shanty" "Seventeen Nephews" and "The Very Small Sailor"
No doubt some of these great stories have been censored because some shmuck of an editor judged them not politically correct enough (though I find not one of them offensive in any way), but others seem to have been expunged for absolutely no apparent reason! Now, I regret buying this phoney censored copy! It leaves out so many great stories and terrific artwork. It's not half as good as the original. And I suppose that since most people no longer have the original they have nothing to compare it to! Well I do!
Great stories and poems!
My brother had this book when I was growing up (I was born in '68, himself in '64). I was carried away by the pictures and for so many years recalled the feeling they left with me...some bright and cheery, some dark and a bit ominous. It filled my imagination with tales of pirates, mermaids, ships and sailors. I found my brothers old copy about ten years back and couldn't find a new copy to get him (or an old copy). I am glad to have found this book available again. I bought it for his daughter...
...His kid sister sure had many an enjoyable afternoon imaging herself on a ship on a distant sea and I'm sure she will too!
