By: Paul Hutchens
and the whole 'Author Bio'.
Not a thing was said, and I read it all carefully twice, about the series being 'updated for today's readers'. Imagine my disappointment, then, when we opened the package and found that splashed all over the back.
When one buys a series one read as a children, specifically for one's own children and grand children, one wishes to know if they are actually the same books!!
