(Not sure if I had this ISBN or not.)

Having read a rewritten version of this story as a child, I decided I wanted to read the whole thing. And - well - maybe it's better in the original German. Unfortunately, I found it a little stilted, rather unbelievable, and just not as good as the rewritten version. I still suggest that everyone be familiar with this story - it is exciting, and definitely fun; however, I would suggest going with a less faithful translation, and possibly an entirely rewritten tale.
