i want to travel to an enchanted isle...this child's treasury of literature holds many classics like "the elephant's child" by rudyard kipling. it's colorfully illustrated, has fantastic endpapers and is an all around wonderful resource for kids or grown-ups. it's book 3 in a series of 4 'readtext series' published by merrill books. also, all lithos...my favorite. this edition is perhaps the nicest former library edition ever, sadly it was never checked out, which explains it all. a hidden gem.
