Bought my wife this Rand Classic for Christmas. We have quite a few lovely children's books that we won't let the kids get their sticky little mits on until they're too old to read them anyway and this one is going on that high shelf along with all the others. If they're lucky, we might read it to them at arms length if they promise to sit on their hands.
Re-published last year for (I think) the first time since the original 1957 edition, it stands up really well when compared to more contemporary books. It's inexpensive and lovely.
