Should have stuck with the memory - this is awful!
on 26 November 2009
I had a very fond memory of reading this when I was a small girl - it is a very naive and unrealistic story but it must have had a certain charm at that time for me to remember it with such affection - but, many years later, I know it was a mistake to read it again.
The big problem now, however, is the appallingly low quality of this privately re-issued paperback. Nobody had even bothered to proof-read it before it was printed and constant lazy errors littered every page - in almost every sentence! There was even a spelling mistake in the blurb on the back cover.
The illustrations were crude and unnecessary, too.
If you are thinking of buying this, be aware that it is a rip-off and an insult to the innocent buyer to have to pay what is an extortionate amount for such a cheaply made, badly-printed product.
All involved should be ashamed of themselves.
