Benedict Flynn rewrites classics for kids and in the process manages to avoid dumbing them down or Disney-fying them. Although Logan, at 6 years old, did not enjoy this *quite* as much as he did Robin Hood, I think that's more a matter of his current interests (pirates, knights, castles) and less because of any difference in quality between the two.

I liked it. It was engaging and enlightening. encouraging also at no matter how bad things got he never gave up hope... Neither did his family. Thank you Mr. Flynn for not dumbing it down and bringing the stories to life.
