I am a huge fan of Poe, and I have read "The Tell-Tale Heart" several times. This time, reading the Creative Classic Series version, I still enjoyed the story. However, with all due respect for Byron Glaser's talent, I did not feel that the illustrations particularly added to the story experience. They did, however, make the story a little more fun for the child reader without distracting from the power of the text itself. A short biography of Edgar Allan Poe appears at the end, geared specifically toward young readers. If you want to introduce your child to Poe's short stories, this might be the book to get.
