Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I bought the paperback version of this book for my son who enjoys Edith Nesbit. My review is NOT for the content of the book, but for the print quality. Upon receiving this book, I could immediately tell that something wasn't quite right. The book had been printed 4 days before it landed on my front porch, according to the last page. The book cover looks like it is a low-resolution photocopy of the original hardback. It does not contain a copyright page in the front, something very important to me as I teach my children to look for the year the book was written. Additionally, the margins were off-centered throughout the book.
I highly recommend this book. My wife checked it out from the library to read with our 7-year-old before bed. She would read one story to him each night while I put our younger child to bed. When I came down he would always excitedly tell me all about the story they had read, including tiny little details. Several times he told my wife "I wish we didn't have to take this back to the library" so she got it for him for his birthday. We couldn't believe how excited he was as he almost started to cry and yelled "My wish came true!" Very enjoyable book.
I read Edward Eager's fantasy books forty years ago. The characters in his books read books by E. Nesbit. So I'm enchanted to find that these are real books and I can read them on my Kindle.

However, my Kindle version has no illustrations. Ouch! The Project Gutenberg edition has beautiful line-drawings. It would be lovely to integrate these.

Aside from the missing illustrations, the book was wonderful. Literally, full of wonder: lots of twists that I've never encountered before or since. Dragons both good and evil; princes likewise; unexpected weaknesses and resolutions. Plus a few jokes slipped in for adults (at least, I think they would have gone over my head when I was eight.)
