Not as good as the original, but still a fun read Jan. 20 2012

I loved this book growing up and have been reading the original USA printing to my kid. I decided to purchase the new printing as a gift. The wording has changed and the prose doesn't flow as nicely as the original. Oh well...still a good book.
