I'm sorry, but the text STILL isn't right!
on 5 April 2012
It's nice to have a small hardback version of these lovely books available again, but the text is being touted as 'unabridged'. I'm sorry, but I have some copies of the original books from the 1930s and yet, again, the original words of Alison Uttley have been 'tidied'.
Not on a grand scale, and not as drastically as some of the shocking copies which appeared in the 1990s. Just the odd sentence or word here and there have been stripped out. WHY? To save space?
