This book was good for my kids, & they liked it, even though there were no pictures.
A *wonderful* story. I only read it as I had just seen the movie, otherwise I never would have thought to. As typical, the book is far superior to the movie. I found the language to be a bit difficult at times (for me) but that does not detract from the story. I'm half tempted to read it again - this time with dictionary in hand, to be sure not to miss anything!
