it was amazing
Read 4 times. Last read July 22, 2016 to July 26, 2016.

(I read the illustrated version but there's no book for it on here so I'm marking it as the first actual book)

This illustrated version did something truly magical: it made me feel like I was reading this story for the first time. yes of course I've read it countless times but the addition of the beautiful drawings and not knowing which scenes would be brought to life as illustrations added an extra level of excitement.

I've previously rated this book 4 stars after every re-read but I've decided to bump it up to the full five stars as I realised while reading this edition how great this story really is. Not just in terms of the incredible world and characters, but the pacing.

I never thought I'd honestly feel like I was reading this for the first time again, but I did with this edition and I honestly cried.
