As a child I loved this book and read it over and over. Both the story and the illustrations are captivating. Wish that I could get this edition in the states...
This was my son's favourite bedtime story; he's 36 now! I still have the battered copy, and bought this new version for my 2-year-old grandson for Christmas. Under fives will enjoy it. The text is almost the same as the original - simple, clear and repetitive, which small children love. It's a lovely story about make-believe which could come true! The illustrations have been updated to show a modern young Mum and little boy, and are beautifully drawn. A welcome addition is a small baby - perfect if your toddler is getting used to a new arrival in the family.
