Linda C It is an amazing children's book that I read almost 50 years ago and still remember. My own kids loved it too Would I love it now as an adult? Odds are, probably not. Better to keep the childhood memory.
Orinoco Womble (tidy bag and all) That's a subjective thing. I loved this book at about age 7 but as an adult I didn't like it very much. "Good" to me might be "off my face with boredom" to you, and vice versa.
