I love the book (it's probably THE defining book of my childhood), so I was excited when I first heard about the annotated version. It's okay, but not wonderful. Nearly all of the annotations identify quotes or plants - neither of which held much interest with me, and (as far as my reading goes) neither of which affected the text very much. Also, it was awkwardly formatted - footnotes would begin at the very bottom of the page they referenced, with most of it carrying over to the next page, and not because there wasn't room on the page.
