My mother says my first copy of this was a gift from a kind neighbour who wanted to encourage my scholastic leanings! I started reading it around age 7, and remember frequently delving into it, and enjoying it tremendously. I've got a recent edition now, paperback and far less impressive, but I hope my niece will enjoy it in her turn.
