Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried, tested and true - a gem of a book for little ones I loved this book as a little girl and know I am able to pass along that love to my little girl. This is an easy and short read for those of you who want a book that packs a punch in a short amount of time. There is something so appealing about this story that you can't, not love it! Do yourself a favour and buy it - you won't regret. It's a classic for a reason.
