THIS IS THE US VERSION - disappointing/avoid
on 12 May 2013
This is a set of ten stories which have been shortened and use American phrases, so they are not the original stories as written by Roger Hargreaves. Very disappointing if you are familiar with the original British versions. If you want your children to share the experience and delight you had as a child in reading these excellent stories, you're better off buying the fuller UK box set.
To find out which version you have: look up Mr Tickle - if he reaches for a 'biscuit' at the start of the story, it's the British version; if he reaches for a 'cookie' it's the American one, which also has some paragraphs and images deleted, no doubt to satisfy shorter attention-spans.
