My favorite book as a child. My child's favorite book as a child. I think boys will like this more than girls, but who knows? I feel like this book changed my thinking more than any other book I read prior to age 14.

This is my favorite book! It is a children's book, but I have only read it as an adult. I love how the author describes things--especially places. The book was in great condition & was shipped quickly.

I have looked for this book for years. Very excited to find it agsin.
I loved this book when I read it in high school. I had lost my copy over the years and I wanted to read it again.
This is my only book from Amazon.com that got away. I bought it used from a used book seller and they got paid.
They said they were having a problem with shipping it right then so would a short wait be OK? I never heard back from them.
I was only reminded when I was asked to review the books I have bought from Amazon.com.
