This volume will be a welcome addition to a young reader’s library! A number of classic children’s books are abridged and retold within it. All of the re-tellings are easy to follow and may well encourage children to seek out the unabridged versions of their favorite stories. Sixteen tales are included in this volume so there should be something for everyone. A sample of what is included…Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, The Wizard of Oz, The Secret Garden, Peter Pan, Anne of Green Gables and Little Women. I enjoyed revisiting these stories. The book is illustrated and the artwork added to my enjoyment of the book. Definitely a good purchase for a child’s reading collection.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for letting me spend time with my favorite classics from childhood.
