Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Favourite As a child I fell in love with this book. It had animals, adventure and beautiful, complex illustrations. I enjoyed exploring the illustrations on the borders that hinted of what was coming next in the story. I still love going back to this story today. It's a keeper- make sure you get a copy!
