The story is a classic and needs no introduction. About this book in particular, it includes the elegant illustrations featured in the animation film based on the book. That said, for a mass paperback book running into 115 odd pages, it's highly overpriced. Also, the book has a sticker marked at Rs.499, whereas is being sold at higher rate. I don't know the reason for this, but illustrations notwithstanding, I find it hard to justify the cost. Wait for a reasonably priced edition.
