2.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE: Not the right edition!, 30 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My two boys (now over 25) remember this as THE BEST EVER childrens' book, so I wanted to buy one to await my grandson's arrival.
BUT I was really disappointed to find it was only a normal sized paperback. (I brought Burglar Bill and Cops'n'Robbers at the same time - they were both the proper 10" x 8" versions).
Don't get me wrong - it's a wonderful story - actually all about telling stories - but this is NOT the edition you want!!
Hunt around and get your kids a copy of the original Picture Puffin - much bigger, much better illustations - and then enjoy that: by comparison, this version is really weedy!
