I have had this book on my list to read for quite a while now. I knew that it contained a lot of illustrations, but I didn't realize just how many! I finally picked it up on a Sunday night when I was looking for something to tide me over until Tuesday when I was expecting a book I ordered to be in at Nicola's. Well, while I loved the book, it didn't last me until Tuesday! In fact, it didn't even last me until Monday, I finished it in one sitting. But, I loved it. I loved studying the illustrations and thought the storyline was excellent. I've recently checked it out again so I can re-read and re-study the illustrations now that I've also seen the movie.
The storyline was full of twists and turns and the pictures told as much of the story as the text did. The illustrations had so much fine detail and were just gorgeous. I highly recommend this book to kids and adults alike!
