An interesting retelling of the old story (which I know I read as a child, just don't know which version), but this author also illustrated the book. The pictures are almost better than the story.

(I found this in my sister's bag of kids books that needed to go back to the library.)

I can't believe I don't remember this book from my childhood, but surely I read it. It seems so classic. I'm stuck on the fact that all of these creatures felt the need to run away.
Is that sad for children, or just me?

The changes to the story are not improvements.

I liked my russian version better. This one was not only oddly translated to unlikable state, but also changed. I still remember this story thou, from my childhood, they had movie and audio casette, but there they also had human with them. I still can recite the songs they sang in my head. "Ничего на свете лудше нееееету, чем бродить друзьям по белому свеееету!" Ok now I will cry in the corner!
