I used to read the longer versions of these books as a child, and loved Mrs P. I bought the illustrated versions for my 3 year old son, not really expecting him to enjoy them, but hoping he would! Both my 6 year old son, and the 3 year old ask for one or both of the 2 stories in this book at bedtime.
I have only given 4 stars because I don't think the language is as child friendly as it could be, it is a little old fashioned, but then maybe thats the appeal of the books! The illustrations are lovely though, and seem to engage the children.
