I know it's a simplified version for younger folk, but they made unnecessary changes and skimped on the artillery man's ideas of the future. and some of the turns of phrase tried too hard and we're just plain weird.

Decent for what it was: a simplified retelling for a younger audience. It did encourage me to read the original and I liked the illustrations.
