I've always loved reading, looking, staring at this book for years. I'm sad that the cover ripped and that there are stains on the book front cover as well (I was a kid! lol so sue me!), but the book itself has held up inside almost perfectly.
Anyway, the story itself is truly timeless in many ways. Discovering the world alone for the characters was interesting. There is so much more than meets the eye when reading more than once. I've learned about many things that maybe weren't in the made for tv movie they did about 9-10 years ago on ABC.
This is one of those type of books that I think it just great to collect and have in general as well. The cover art alone would make people go "oOoOo" and "Ahhhh" very easily because of the details.
All in all, this is just one of those books that is good to own. There is so much that I could say, but it'll mostly be about the art work that the story lol
But seriously, the artwork is something that would make even an adult want to buy this book... I believe it to be something of a rare gem in the book world with how amazing the artist too the the time to create such a vivid imagery.
