  3. I still enjoy the book and take small dips into it regularly – but I couldn’t read it straight through. And your collection of illustrations is great.

  4. I would like to be able to read it in Spanish. I enjoyed it so much the first time I read it in English. Years later I tried to read it again and was disappointed in the translation. Now I wish I could remember who translated the first one I read, which was superior.
