While this is the new politically correct version, it still maintains a lot of the original language and it is wonderful to be able to read to Miss 4 and have her enjoy the stories as much as I did when I was younger.
The illustrations are beautiful and are just like the ones in the earlier version of the book I owned as a child.
I rated the book as a 4, simply because I do not agree with the book being changed to be more PC.
